    I enjoyed seeing the photo of the 519. As a kid I was hanging around the depot and yard in Monett, MO one day and an engineer gave me the opportunity to operate the 519 for a few moments. Fond memories. :)

    Re: SLSF 529 GP7

    I remember seeing wig-wags at crossings along 60 Hwy coming from Springfield on the Memphis main at various crossings back when I was a little kid travelling from KC to Ava to see family. They even had them in Seymour at one time. Now they have flashing lights and gates at the crossings.
     
  16. I came across a Frisco GP7 on my railfaning trip though central Arkansas. It is ex-Frisco 534. It was sold to IC and Rebuilt into a GP8. It resides on the Little Rock & Northwestern Railroad in Perry, AR she now wears an orange and black scheme. Looks kinda nice beside the Perry's old Rock Island depot. It is acompanyed by two Alco's and another EMD engine that wasn't present at the time.
    Ship it on the Frisco!!!

    Is that a new style camouflage that the military is trying out on 438? :confused:

    Man, I feel like sending them a gallon of paint. :eek:

    BTW , for my knowledge bank, are those 4 stacks on the roof?

  19. Yep the 7736 is her. The 438 is the other engine that was off. It has been repainted I heard. Those are 4 stacks on the 7736. May have been part of the IC rebuild. Real hard to tell it ever was a Frisco unit. I was suprised to find anything Frisco on my trip. I also lucked into finding a red Frisco caboose sitting of the hi-way in Little Rock. My trip ventured south from there where I got to visit the old Reader Railroad. Neat bunch of steam engines there. I'm just amazed a Frisco GP-7 exists in some form on an operating railroad. Hope to find more stuff coming up with band. We travel halfway across state for most games.
    Ship it on the Frisco!!!

    How did you know that unit was a Frisco unit? Where is that caboose in Little Rock?
