Silver Pilot & The Nebraska Zephyr

Nine of these polished, stainless steel clad, Electro-Motive Corp (EMC-EMD) E5 diesel electric, cab unit, locomotives and three B units, powered by twin 12 cylinder, 567 cubic inch, supercharged engines, each developing 2,000 hp, were produced in 1940 and 1941 to pull the Burlington Route's stainless steel Zephyr series of passenger trains. I saw #9911-A, this, the only survivor, up close and personal during the "Streamliners at Spencer" assemblage at the NC Transportation Museum in 2014.
