    There were two primary reasons cited. 1.The merger would reduce competition. ( I believe that the opposite would be the case.) 2.The Frisco acquired CoG stock control without permission of the ICC. (It's not nice to mess with the regulators) The Frisco divested the stock to the Southern during 1963.

    Wonder why they denied it? It would have been essentially an end-to-end merger. Probably suffered from strong lobbying by the powers that be in the south - Southern, Atlantic Coast Line, Seaboard Air Line, etc. Illinois Central probably didn't like it either - they were one of IC's passenger partners in getting to Florida from Chicago.

    From my recent post on another thread: I am disposing of magazines and had some issues of Modern Railroads Magazine and ran across an interesting from the '60's listing mergers, both approved and denied, leading up their prediction of how the merger world would ultimately shake down. Having said that, they listed a takeover attempt by the Frisco of the Central of Georgia that was filed on 12/06/55 and denied by the ICC on 11/14/58. This begs...

    Ethan - I really like the shot of the four GP40-2's pulling into Lindenwood Yard. Those hot-shot GP40-2 trains were really something - they could really hammer along with their 12,000 HP. A good collection of cars in the yard that day as well. All of us in StL miss seeing the "monuments" (Laclede Gas tanks) in the background. They are all gone, as is much of the neat stuff at Lindenwood. Ken

Just for extra historical fact, the Frisco like to lash these up into sets of 4 and run hot shot trains with them (this is perfect for that). So its a good thing Athearn is making four numbers for those of you that are wanting to attempt this.

    I remember back in the "old days" when there was virtually no Frisco diesel power offered in RTR models. We had to start with an undec to model anything. Now, I think, every major Frisco diesel unit has been modeled, in HO at least, with at least one or more pretty well done examples. The two "A's", Athearn and Atlas, have been particularly good to us, as has Proto 2000 with the E's, Walthers, and Bowser/Stewart. I'd still like to see...

    Sure. Very simply, you are correct; GP = General Purpose, SD = Special Duty. But, that doesn't really describe their function. The GP series uses a "B-B" truck arrangement, i.e., the two axle Blomberg truck, four driven wheels per truck. they are generally better for higher speed use, but that is not a limit - GP's are seen everywhere, in all sorts of uses. The SD is a bigger, longer locomotive, and rides on "C-C" truck arrangement, i.e, a...

    I have a couple of the very similar SW1000s, lettered for BN. They run rings around the old BlueBox versions. Etched metal radiator grills; grab irons; MU hoses; nice windows; nicer paint jobs; VERY nice Genesis-quality motors. And don't forgot road-specific and even number-specific details. They are definitely worth getting. In fact, I'm still kicking myself that I only picked up 2 of the 3 SW1000s and none of the 3 SW1500s. Cheers, ...
