    Default 2011 Frisco Convention Pictures

    Attached are photos that were taken on the tour of the Springfield Underground. The interior photos show the unusual ambiance with its limestone pillars, loading bays and BNSF reefers servicing the Kraft cheese facility. A driving rain kept me from taking many outside views but the last photo shows the runaway track.

    Attendees of the Convention were allowed to explore the cosmetically restored Frisco engine 4524 in Grant Beach Park as well as many of the artifacts housed in the cars coupled to it.

    A brief respite from the rain provided the opportunity to take some pictures of the Frisco headquarters building Sunday morning. This is where the presentations were held Saturday.

    These pictures from Ron Williams taken Saturday evening show the Frisco retirees that regaled us with stories of times past.
    I need help with names.
    1) Larry Phillips; Electrician
    2) Larry Phillips, Steve Counts, Guy Pollard, Bill Wadley, Pat Hiatte, Charlie Dischinger in background
    3) Bill Wadley; Conductor
    4) Steve Counts; Engineer - Springfield to Thayer
    5) Guy Pollard; Safety, Bill Wadley
    6) Guy Pollard, Bill Wadley
    7) Bill Wadley, Charlie Dischinger in background, Pat Hiatte
    8) Guy, Bill

    Note: The locomotive model was a gift from BNSF to Larry Phillips for winning the design competition for the paint scheme used on a real locomotive (displaying the scheme on the model). The caboose wren house (duplex) was made by Larry Phillips and can be purchased for $35.00

    EDIT: The Frisco vets were one of the highlights of the meet!

    Andre and all,

    I truly regret that I was unable to attend the convention and meet y´all! Looks like Tulsa might make the 2012 and I will do everything possible to show up. I have a Frisco/Katy fan who lives within spittin´ distance of Tulsa town and I can pitch a pup tent in his lower 40.

    The photos are great. Mabie I can send a slide of myself to Frisco Mike so he can put on the site and prove to the world that the Ugly Stick does work! I will hide under my white Operation Lifesaver cap. Still need a Frisco and Katy pin for it, a la Texas Special!

    I love all the railroads that served the Great Southwest but the Frisco remains dear to my heart. I can tell by the photos that all of you are a great bunch of people. Hope I can make the meet in 2012.

    Sorry I could not attend the convention, I had a Boy Scout camp out to go to.

    I love the Frisco bird house, I'm building one now, very cool.

    Those photos of the conference room at Frisco Crossing demonstrate what a great location the 2011 convention had.

    Does anyone know - have any of the presentation PowerPoint files been posted, or will they be?

    I thought all the presenters were terrific.
