CB&Q 163ABC* and Dinky in 1964
Title:  CB&Q 163ABC* and Dinky in 1964
Description:  *Note, there is actually no way to tell if the F3s are 163BC because two other F3s could have been hooked on that day. Assuming they are, then we have 163A F7A blt 1950, 163BC F3B F3A blt 1948 and a 2 car Dinky. This is no doubt the Fairview Av Interlocking.
