    From Richard Crabtree on Frisco Rails Across Missouri:

    Here we see Kansas City, Ft. Scott and Memphis (KCFS&M) 0-4-0 switcher in 19th Street Yard in Kansas City, Missouri. Built in the 1880s, I believe that it may have survived to become a Frisco 0-4-0 switcher No. 3###

    Karl Brand:
    The Frisco’s antecedent roads rostered but three, four-wheeled switchers.

    The Gulf Road’s number 36, Manchester Class of 1880, builder’s number 863,

    Birmingham Belt Railway (BBRy) numbers 1 and 5.
    Number 1, a Baldwin class of 1886, 0-4-2, was supposedly retired during 1900, but she appears in the 1903 roster as Frisco 3698.

    BB Ry, number 5, a Pittsburg class of 1889, 0-4-0, which lasted into the 1920s as Frisco 3698.

    The little Gulf Road 0-4-0 KCFS&M 36 did not fare as well. She did not survive the merger with the Frisco.
