  2. The June 2007 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman contains an article by Richard Napper, who has been mentioned before in this webforum, describing his kitbash of a couple of these locomotives, one in black-&-gold and one in orange-&-white.

    One of my favorite photo prints is one purchased from a train show dealer years ago. It shows 554 and 543 MUed (!) and working a local at Mountain Grove, MO August 1955. Photographer unknown. So, at least one of the RS-2s had MU capability.
