4-8-2 1521 at Big Bend and Geyer Road in Windsor Springs, Missouri, circa 1949-1950.

According to Frisco.org resident expert Don Wirth, the “train is the Pacific Switcher which left Lindenwood Yard (St. Louis) with empty hoppers and gondolas about 1:00 PM or so, went out to Pacific, Missouri to switch the gravel pits and bring the loads back in.”

An excellent story for an excellent picture!
