    SLSF 132, 133, 130, 38 in one consist

    SLSF 132, 133, 130, 38 in one consist, Sherman, TX, 1968. This is a good mix and I believe represents all paint schemes applied to the "covered wagons". Notice the rear door is open on the rear B unit. It was necessary to enter the unit to remove the MU connections to a trailing unit.

    I think the photos posted by Paul Bender above might more likely be somewhere in Oklahoma rather than Kansas. The double track in the photo of 5033 and the junction in the photo of 18 look like the area around Sapulpa OK to me. Please comment if I am incorrect.

    Ken you are right. The picture Paul posted of engine 18 is a picture of the train going by the depot in Sapulpa, Oklahoma toward OKC. The other picture could be north of Sapulpa with the train about to start under the Turner Turnpike.

    I have a feeling that Paul Bender's photos were taken in Augusta, although I could be wrong. The thing that makes me think that is the station in the background, being of the same design of the Augusta Station, and the warehouse on the left is actually the old Ed's IGA (I think now its called the Applemarket). The final distinction is the semaphore to the immediate right of the last engine. Ive been documenting the line from Columbus to Ellsworth for MSTS.

    Thats Sapulpa on the north side of town where the line from Tulsa (Cherokee Yard) splits and goes to OKC or Okmulgee

    That's an OLD photo. I don't think I ever saw a F unit in all black without the cigar band before. It just looks bare without that yellow stripe.

    This is a great thread to reference for the B units. I noticed from Mike Condern's Frisco Paint Shop the original B units did not have Frisco lettering on the side or running numbers. Were the original B units marked with running numbers anywhere? What numbers were used for the B units before renumbering?

    Thanks,

    Re: SLSF 130(5130) F7B - 1968

    Yes, as delivered, there was a small unit number on the lower side of the B-units, in the yellow, close to the rear, no bigger than 2" tall. The F3A's started the SLSF 5000 series; the F3B's started the SLSF 5100 series. In the beginning, the Frisco bought their EMD F's in ABBA sets. Later on, when the F7's, F9's and FP7's came along, the 1:1 ratio of A-units and B-units was not always 1:1, although it was close. We wound up with 52 EMD A-units and 53 EMD B-units.

    Ken, do you know the date when the Frisco renumbered the F units in the larger numbers?
