    I am not a huge steam fan, but I have always been fascinated by the Frisco’s modernized 4-4-0s.

    There is another photo of s very similar train on a different date posted here

    This photo’s a really gem: a modernized 4-4-0 with a converted troop sleeper express baggage car…and less than 3 years before steam’s demise on the Frisco.

    Anyone have a positive ID on which train this would have been?

    The Joplin Plug… 121 and 124 as I recall… via Girard and Pittsburg

    Last run 8/1/51…one of tha last Bullmoose operations

  5. Christopher Abernathy says:

    Thanks, Karl -#182 serving as, perhaps, substitute power in 1949 for a bull moose?

  6. Christopher Abernathy says:

    And, I now see in the “Related” section just below that there’s another photo of #182 in Pittsburg KS a year or so earlier, with a similarly short passenger consist, including what appears to be an ex-troop sleeper express baggage.
