    Roundhouse and turntable at Chaffee in 1928. I can't remember the lady that owns this photo but she is related to the Kay family.

    Chaffee MO Roundhouse Proposed Changes 1951

    Another one as provided by Karl Brand. In order to get the original file to work I had to resize to a point where the dimensional numbers are tough to read. Feel free to contact me if you need specific info.

    Charles, read below.

    Tim, and Chris.
    In the very early days of the forum, before the membership part of the original vBulletin software was configured, posts could be made by anyone that could access the website, but since the membership system was not yet functional, those of you who posted were recognized by the name your provided and given the title, "Guest" by the system. Unfortunately, the older posts were never linked to the membership account you had when the system went fully functional and now it can't be done with the current software.

    From Richard Crabtree on Frisco Rails Across Missouri:
    Here we see Frisco No. 1044 4-6-2 built by Schenectady Locomotive Works in 1912 and Frisco No. 1402 4-6-0 built by Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1902 in
    Chaffee, Missouriat the Frisco Roundhouse & Turntable.
    We see a Frisco Engineer and Fireman posing in front of their prize steed ready to ride.

    1044.jpg I have the original. The taller man's son, Charles Vickery, told me this was St. Louis not Chaffee. It was a Chaffee crew.

    Hard to fit the pic to Chaffee

    The most obvious is the large building on the right. Nothing like that in Chaffee.

    Tim, that thought occurred to me as well. I’d looked back over maps and pics and couldn’t place it.

    Another thought: the picture does appear to be in a locomotive servicing area or ready track. Wouldn’t “Memphian” and “Sunnyland” motive power have been running through Chaffee without change or servicing by this date? Servicing of passenger power in Chaffee, then, would have been unusual.

    And as for date, I’d guess sometime about ‘43 or thereafter, if 1044 is sporting a larger sand dome, which it apparently is.

    Tim, is your source “Coach” Vickery? I think he and my mom both were CHS Class of 1970.

    No, it was coach's dad "Vick" with the info. He is deceased now. My uncle Joe was in that class of 1970 too.
