My name is Ron, and I live in Australia. I'm modelling the GC&SF (AT&SF) in southern Oklahoma, in 1960, in N scale . Ardmore, the main town on my layout, has an interchange with the Frisco, and while researching appropriate Frisco equipment, I stumbled across this web site. I found Mike's notes on Ardmore very interesting, by the way.
Right now I'm trying to work out:
(i) What N scale cabooses can be used for SLSF in 1960, and how to paint them. I read that the 1100 series were ex-ATSF, but I can't track down any photos. Were they anything like the Atlas steel/cupola caboose?
(ii) Did the Frisco provide any sort of passenger service to Ardmore in 1960, or was it purely freight traffic?
