    Agree! Thanks for saving and posting those F-7 pics!

    When I worked that OKC yard (during the Watco years) it looked very different. It's been interesting to see it when it was Frisco property.

    Agree, very nice pics. You can tell these SLSF covered wagons have served long and well. Good views of the cab-top five-forward Leslie horn, the single rear facing horn, the "nail" radio antenna, and the flasher beacon sitting up high on a tall base.

    Note the B-unit is a F9B. Its d/b fan is visible, as well as the different style side grill.

    Wow Ken--Yer the diesel spotter su-preme! After they painted them mandarin and white and took off the skirts, I just had to look at the numbers to tell them apart.

    Tom - It's the product of a mis-spent life!

    The large d/b fan on the F9B's is an eye-catcher. The change from the fabricated grill to the Farr grill on the sides is much more subtle.
