    The beginning is deceiving. Photos begin about 45 seconds in.

    According to Joe Collias's Frisco Power, page 123, three Pacific's, Nos. 1018, 1026 & 1031 received the "Firefly" streamline treatment.

    I noticed at least two of the locomotives appeared in a few pics with a Delta trailing truck replacing the Cole truck. Anybody know what that happened?

    1029,1031 and 1039 received Delta trucks for some reason. May have been experimenting or repairing damage. I'm in the process of making a Sunset 4-6-2 into the 1039 right now. I like the looks of it. Wish I could find some better pix that what I have.
