SLSF 4-6-0 #514 - St Louis-San Francisco (Frisco)
Title:  SLSF 4-6-0 #514 - St Louis-San Francisco (Frisco)
Description:  Before a Frisco GP7 wore the number 514, this 4-6-0 did for the Frisco. According to one on-line source, this loco was originally built in 1893 as -St L B & M #42 (serial #1479). It appears to be in a storage or scrap line at Chaffee, MO. No photographer was listed for the photo.

SLSF 4-6-0 #1406 - St Louis-San Francisco (Frisco)
Title:  SLSF 4-6-0 #1406 - St Louis-San Francisco (Frisco)
Description:  This is an unusual photo with several discrepancies. It appears to be in a storage/scrap line but the loco was still working in 1939. Second, the "Vanderbilt" tender was rarer on SLSF locos and suggests possibly that it was an oil burner but several sources state that this class was not an oil burner. Nevertheless, the loco was built by Burnham, Wms &Co in December of 1907 and after 40+ years was "dismissed from service" between March 1950 and November 1951. No photographer was listed for the photo.

Title:  SLSF 4-6-0 #713 - St Louis-San Francisco (Frisco)
Description:  Besides a GP38 wearing the number "713", this Alco-Brooks 4-6-0 ten wheeler did at a much earlier date. The loco was built in June of 1906.
