ex SLSF #1425, BN 11655 at Cape Girardeau, taken March 1983 by Keith Robinson.
This one looks like it leaning. Is it derailed, or is it just sittin on a down hill slope. I guess what I am wondering is, has she jumped the tracks or are there just not any tracks under her.
It looks to be leaning into a curve to me.
Re: SLSF 1425
The train was southbound, just south of the Mississippi River Bridge at Cape Girardeau. The tracks curving right, super-elevated with a slight downhill ~.3% grade. I snapped the picture while the train was stopped momentarily.
I would post the other pictures I took of the power unit in the train (a B30-7AB) that caught my eye as it passed through downtown Cape, but the sensibilities of this forum are such that the color of the unit may turn stomachs here. Unit 4092 sure got around - I found pictures taken in St. Paul, MN and Gardner, KS.
Please post them. I for one want to see them.
Keith, can I pry for info on where you were standing? I'm trying to place it - all I can think of is Giboney St. near where the MoP used to branch off (where Sides Steel is currently located).
I was standing on Aquamsi, about 300' south of the bridge. See the B&W photo below. The telegraph pole in that picture IS IN THE SAME LOCATION, maybe the same one, just with one of the telegraph crossarms replaced with another strung with AC lines!
I will have to wait 'til this evening to post the B30-7AB photos that I took since they are only on my home computer. I will post them here, so you will have to come back to this thread to find them. I have the stuff to kitbash one.
p.s. There will also be pictures of another unusual visitor (at least this far south) that appeared at Chaffee about the same time! A covered wagon from Havre, MT.
Neat photo, Keith...thanks for the info. I can't wait until we see pics of your layout taking shape. I need to get to KC with the family sometime soon once things start to thaw.
