    Attached is a pic of SLSF 1727, sitting at Newburg, Mo in the fall of 1980. The railroad was shut down that day, a Saturday, because of a wreck up around Dillon-Cuba. This train ..... looks like the last car is a ballast car, was sitting at Newburg waiting for the clean-up crews to re-open the railroad eastbound. We stopped off at Newburg after driving down to Crawford County to pick up a "Mark Twain Forest cedar tree" for our backyard.

    BTW, that tree thrived, and is still doing fine in our former house's backyard.

    Nice photo, Ken...this is one of the Consolidated Mechanical Shops home-builts, correct?

    Aside from an old wooden caboose that was at a park in Chaffee, my first (and only) experience with sitting in an active Frisco caboose was one of the new bay-window jobs during Chaffee's "Frisco Days" in August, 1980. I'd wish my folks had throught to take along a camera!

    Yes, a CMS bay-window it was.

    Wish I would have had a better camera with me. Sorry about the grainy pic.

    The idled train stretched up into the bluff area and I could not get a shot of the power.
