Herewith are a few of the pictures that Judy was unable to post from the DQ's lengthy layover at Rock Island in September, 1954, when she ran through herself. These are from slides taken by Capt. C.W. Stoll, who was aboard with his wife, Marijane, and year old daughter Christy.

(1) DQ wheel - starboard side - September 17, 1954.
(2) DQ wheel crank - Assistant Engineer Fred Taylor on fantail - September 17, 1954
(3) Car that rolled down wharf and into river after brakes failed, hitting DQ hull - while passengers were having breakfast in Orleans Room! September 21, 1954.
