FA-1 5209 at Van Buren, Arkansas on April 6, 1964 (Mike Condren).
The train is railroad northbound (geographically northeast at this spot). The photo was taken from near 11th Street and its intersection with Cedar Street. This is a block east and two blocks north of the Frisco’s Van Buren depot. At this location the train is just beyond the north turnout for the depot passing track.
The brick building over the FB-1 units is the rear of the gymnasium of today’s Butterfield Trail Middle School.
Special thanks to Mark Davidson.
