Now, for those of you that may be interested, this is not a home made locomotive. It is an EMC Model 40, built in 1940. It was built by General Motors' Electro-Motive Corporation and there were only eleven built, between 1940 and 1943. It was built to compete with GE's 44 toner and most were used by the government during WW II.

Thanks for the tech info. I figured it was wrecked and rebuilt with either a RS-11 nose, or RS-32, something like that.
Ah! The 201! I knew that sucker well. Hot son-of-a-gun in the middle of a sweltering Ozark summer. After running it all day, and once home that night, my left foot/ankle/shin would be red from being baked all day! Think I recall it being something like 130-140 degrees in the cab by the backhead. Oddly enough... I enjoyed every minute of it! Sick, eh?
LOVE the pic of the TOC (Turn of the 19th Century) track gang! Don't know if they came from the Ozarks, but they sure look like pics I have of such Ozark crews from "back then". Tough men. Tough era.
Jon's a busy boy. He's working on two projects for VSC. The more you email him, the less work he'll get done.
Your desire for a mogul is duly noted.
Patience, young Grasshopper, patience.

I believe they had been busy laying some new track for Andre's A&O Subdivision to allow for more traffic or something like that.
why does the song 'Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head' come to mind when I look at that picture???

If the A&O Sub is going through Rogers, don't forget about that stationary display Frisco caboose located at First and Walnut by the old station. I sent you a picture of it a long time ago.
