The photograph was taken at Lindenwood Yard. This is the Mechanical Department’s service tracks area northeast of the diesel shop. In this view is the facility’s sand tower with its distinctive northeast side two-arm branch.
There are several interesting locomotive details in this view. On top of the cab is a yellow light for identifying its location from a distance. Above the engineer’s side window is a canvas awning shade. Inside the cab the upper portion of the front arched center windows have been painted interior green as a permanent light shield visor.
Hanging on brackets under the cab is a re-rail frog. On each car body side there are modified doors with louvers to better ventilate the main generator, visible to the left of the “F” in Frisco on this side. At the front, below the radiator are an angled crossover grab iron and below it on the deck an added box for flagging supplies (flags and fuses).
