U30B 5774 (Frisco 836) at Sherman, Texas in February 1981 (C.P. Ayers).
U30B 835 at Lindenwood Yard St. Louis, Mo (date unknown).
The locomotives are sitting on the ready track at the southwest corner of the diesel shop at Lindenwood Yard. Interesting to note on SLSF 835 is the temporary all white nose and electrical cabinet on the walkway behind the fireman’s side of the cab. The all white nose is the result of the locomotive being rushed back into service after the repair of collision damage. Time was not taken to mask and paint the Mandarin orange lower stripe. On a later visit to the shop this would be corrected.
Also visible in the image is the front half of U30B 839. Note the contrast in how the nose of this unit is painted compared to the temporary all white nose of SLSF 835.
Special thanks to Mark Davidson for description.
