U25B 824 at Birmingham, Alabama (date unknown).

This photo was taken at the Frisco’s East Thomas Yard. The locomotives are sitting in the Mechanical Department service tracks area south of the roundhouse.

After converting from steam to diesel power, the number of roundhouse stalls was reduced and the shop renovated to service the new locomotives. The locomotive turntable sits behind the engines to the west (left in this view) in front of the shop.

The view is looking north/northeast.

Special thanks to Mark Davidson.

    I DO wish there were more pictures of these brutes in the Frisco black and yellow scheme. GE U-boats were made to be painted black! Any locomotives with white in the color scheme was pretty lame! My opinion.
