    MISS RY 630

    Although lettered for the Mississippian Railway, Number 630 obviously originated as a Frisco built caboose. Perhaps its Frisco number was 630 also. Date and location unknown, but presumably in Mississippi. Photograph by Fred C. Bradley.

    I took these images of #375 in July of 1967 at the Pensacola Yard.

  7. I drove through Weaubleau, Mo., recently, and it appears that the fire-damaged SLSF caboose shown in the 1997 photo above is no longer there.

    Re: 27 & 28

    Here are scans of Harold K. Vollrath collection photos from October 1948. 27 was caught in Enid, OK with the old FRISCO LINES coonskin, while 28 was in Winfield, KS sporting the newer FRISCO coonskin. A friend in Annapolis just found one of the old Hallmark HO models and sent me queries about these two cabooses, so I'd scanned/e-mailed these to him. He is Bob Madison who has appreared in MR recently with his nice L-shaped New Haven Ninigret Cove Branch. He just moved, so the layout is being redone. That's more that I've done in the 1-1/2 years since the move up here to Ann Arbor. Carpeting goes down in the basement next week, so the new layout (based roughly on the Gasconade River & Lebanon I designed years ago for Jeff Barkley of Australia) should start in a few months. I have about 71 squares based on 27" curves. Jeff lost his precious wife Gwen in December 2006. Doug

    Re: "Bobber" cabooses

    It wouldn't be prototypical, as Frisco had none.

    Now that looks like a fun one to model? Anyone know a build date/know background/have a drawing?

    I'll go out on a limb and guess that it's homebuilt.

    Well Doggies:) Rick
    That's a nice photo, and makes U a celebrity.
    Should be a very nice model.
    I am in the presence of Greatness.:D
     
  19. Hi I have a dumb question. What numbers did SL-SF cabooses have when steam engines were still king on the line. Did they share numbers with the engines? or did they have totally different higher #'s. I would like to know for modeling an older caboose on my layout.
    Ship it on the Frisco!!!

    Please see this link for a photograph of Frisco caboose SLSF 11??.

    This is one of the Frisco built wood cabooses with a vertical side, steel cupola. These cabooses were originally number with 2 or 3 digit numbers. After the acquisition of the 200 series all steel extended or wide vision cabooses in 1957, this car was demoted to local service. In 1968 all Frisco cabooses were renumbered to avoid conflict with locomotive numbers in a new computer system.

    Please help us with any information that can help identify the specific car number, additional history or chain of custody information for this caboose. The caboose was acquired from an area family who had used the car as a guest house on their farm.

    The caboose is on display at the Drumright Historical Society museum. The museum is based out of the 1915 Santa Fe depot. The car is located on the north side of the street, just southeast of the depot. Please see http://www.drumrighthistoricalsociety.org.

    At this location there is also on display a Frisco passenger car single window coach, SLSF 1062. The coach sits northwest of the depot. It can be viewed from N. Harley St.

    The address is 301 East Broadway, Drumright, OK 74030.

    Please see http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sou...oid=fp5itHizgjhCOnKdDvIE7A&cbp=11,354.58,,0,5

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!
