Here's another pic from my days at MSM. This was taken mid-afternoon, in the spring of 1961, in Rolla, MO, during my freshman year at MSM. The location is just east of the Rolla depot. An eastbound freight is grinding its way up the line after climbing Rolla Hill out of Newburg, headed by SLSF 5030, an EMD F7A, on its way to Lindenwood Yard in St Louis. Note it appears to be an all covered wagon consist - sure do miss seeing those, and hearing them all chant in unison! The five chime Leslie horn with all bells facing forward, the "nail" radio antenna, and the single horn facing rearward (a Leslie or the original "blat"?) are evident on SLSF 5030, as is the single fixed beam headlight. Note also that the yellow cigar band comes to a slight point at the apex on EMD Frisco A-units. It was rounded on the ALCo FA's, as well as on the later "austerity" decor applied to some of Frisco's F's, E's and FA's. Note also the degrading black paint on the riveted-on nose coonskin herald. Ken ps: Three of those bricks from the Rolla depot platform now reside in my back patio. Son Kurt and I liberated them from a big pile of scrap that was being loaded into trucks for disposal as the BN (yechhh!) tore down the Rolla depot sometime in the early to mid 1980's.
