I think that certain questions or topics not directly related to the Frisco occasionally get brought up here, because the member feels comfortable asking it here. Last year, I spotted an unusual switcher here in Union. After posting a few photos of it, a couple of our members were able to identify it as a rare SW1504. I have mixed feelings about posting non-Frisco related material on this site. On one hand, I think the purity should be preserved. On the other, I think that we should be able to come here and ask the occasional non-Frisco question and receive a courteous answer. This is the only railroad modeling and historical forum that I'm a member of (I do have a Yahoo Group Rock Island St. Louis Subdivision membership, but there is never any discussion of modeling there). I would hope that if I ever had a question about the mechanics of my Athearn Rock Island RS-3, I could ask it here. By the way, I'm sure that the models that Ken spoke of here are works of art, just like all the others in his collection. Ken can take a $40.00 model and make it look as good, if not better, than one worth four times that much. Pat Moreland, Union Mo.
