  1. Roy Tankersly at the helm. Near Rolla I believe.

    Maybe between Rolla and Dillon. I remember Roy Tankersly.

    I'm older than dirt! That's where I remember some of the old engineer's names. Dad was Local Chairman for the BofLE 428.
  5. Yeah my dad said your dad was a pall bearer at Roy’s funeral.

    I had a Hallmark brass 4400 at one time, but later sold it. Am I thinking of something else (I'm not much of a steam guy and my memory these days is nearly worthless), but weren't the 4400s built using parts from some other class of locomotives?

    Overland made the 4400s in brass. 4400s used a good deal of parts from the old 2-10-2s including the boiler. 4300s were built new.

    Beautiful photo, Steve.

    The 4300s and 4400s are, hands down, my favorite Frisco power: the former for the demonstrating the craftsmanship of the Springfield Shop, and the latter for managing to effectively recycle the old 2-10-2s and turn them into something most useful and impressive.

    Thoroughly enjoy seeing the 4400s in action.

    Best Regards,
