    Thanks for the profile, Karl. That was quite a ride, I've went through it several times. Once with a Burro Crane and Flat. Once with permission I took a one tie switch stand off the back track on the north end of the tunnel. It had "Frisco System" on it. Kind of wished I would have kept it, but it was too heavy and a guy in Kansas made an offer that I couldn't refuse. There is a couple in the Ft. Smith museum.
