    John:

    Ain't I sumpthin? Huh? Huh? Ain't I SUMPTHIN'?

    :ROFLMAO:

    Actually, I don't think I knew (or remembered!) about the M&L to the coal washer thing. The M&L was that outfit up at Bonanza, wasn't it?

    It's incredible how much activity there was in the "Coal Belt" south/southeast of Fort Smith, AR. I think it was your findings that at one time there was something like FIVE crews working the Mansfield Branch?

    You do remember that I have a virtual version of the Frisco from near Monett, MO (only 30 more miles to Monett!) down to Talihina, I.T. that includes the MV, Iron Mtn to Greenwood, the St. Paul Branch, the Black Mountain & Eastern, et al, right??? :LOL:

    Hello,

    I always enjoy your website and Oak Leafs.
    When I lived in St. Louis I was a NRHS member there for
    many years, I also was a volunteer car conductor on Frisco 1522
    excursions and events.
    I think we have done so before:

    I read the three following post pictures, Frisco items, Timetables, maps,
    what was in those three postings by your organization.
    Within our membership recently there has been great interest about this topic.
    Frankly, frisco.org has very little information about the early years of the
    Mansfield Branch and western Arkansas for Frisco Central Division's old histories.



    Our typical Forums libraries categories are shown below.

    In no ways will these topics be use by me or frisco.org to make moneys.
    Thank you very much,
    Charles
