    Does anybody know where Mincke, Missouri is/was?

    I'm guessing somewhere on the line between Moselle-Robertsville-Catawissa-Pacific on the Eastern Division, but that's just a guess. :confused:

    Obviously, this location was the inspiration for the cover design on the Frisco public timetables.

    If what I found on google is correct it was/is just a few miles west of Kirkwood in St. Louis County.

    Got it! Thanks Bob. Mincke is just west of Morschels, before Eureka, well east of Pacific. The Meramec River is to the northwest of the tracks there, so the train on the PTT is running westbound. The view is looking east.

    OK, so where did they get the E8B? ;)

    Maybe they got it on (wait for it here it comes) EBay!
