KCS Victims
Title:  KCS Victims
Description:  KCS AC4400CW 2040 and GP40-2 4813 were receiving attention at the railroad’s West Yard in New Orleans so they could be sent to the BNSF for permanent repairs. These had been the second and third units on KCS New Orleans-Kansas City train 10 when they were sideswiped by ATSF C40-8W 902 on BNSF Memphis-Houston train H-MEMPTR at 3AM on 20 December 2000. The lead unit on KCS 10 was AC4400CW 2018 and it was not damaged.

The accident took place on the IC on the west side of the New Orleans area at Orleans Junction, and was caused by the IC crew on H-MEMPTR running a red signal. KCS 10 was exercising trackage rights over the IC and was crossing over from the northbound to the southbound main when its trailing units were struck by the BNSF train. H-MEMPTR was detouring over the IC from Memphis to New Orleans because of weather-related problems on the UP in Arkansas, so the BNSF was responsible for the repairs. ATSF 902 ended up lying on its left side, BNSF SD40M-2 7302 was partially derailed, and NS C40-9W 9126 sustained some damage.

KCS F3A 30
Title:  KCS F3A 30
Description:  KCS F3A 30 was 30 years old when it was photographed at Deramus Yard, but its career wasn't nearly over! It was a cab unit from one of two F3AB sets (30, 31) purchased for passenger service in November 1947, thus the two headlights and the water filler hatch under the first "S" in Kansas. Supplemented by two F7AB sets (32, 33) in 1949, all of these units lost their status as primary passenger power when E8A's 26-29 arrived 1952. The 30 was renumbered 4050 a few months after this photo and was later rebuilt into a slug with the same number. It was out of service on the KCS in June 1988, at the age of 41; but was sold to the Kiamichi Railroad where it was renumbered SL-2. After being retired by the KRR, it was scrapped.

KCS F7A 70
Title:  KCS F7A 70
Description:  This KCS identified this F7A as engine number 70 (in the number boards) and unit number 70A (in tiny numerals near the rear), and it was the lead unit on Shreveport-Hope train No. 24. It was renumbered 4055 in April 1978 and rebuilt into a slug with the same number in June 1983. The B-unit was the 76C, one of three F7B's built in February 1951 with steam generators. It was the last of the three in operation and was out of service by the end of 1978, although it wasn't retired until September 1985 and sold for scrap until April 1987. The train's third unit was a GP30. The photographer was offered a cab ride to Hope and back, but his professional obligations prevented him from taking advantage of that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
