That kind of puts my theory to rest, looks like they made the pick right where it was at. Thanks for the loading picture.

Re: Frisco trains. was Re: Dallas Union Terminal in 1957

There were several periods of time that the Frisco didn’t operate passenger trains south of Sherman. During those times some trains simply handed off cars to the Katy at Denison.

At other times they actually ran south of Sherman on their own tracks to Dallas and Fort Worth.

Didn't the Frisco passenger trains use the Katy passenger line through Greenville from Dallas to the Denison Red River bridge?

Was their line through Frisco and Carrollton to Irving freight only, or did Fort Worth sections run it from Denison or Sherman?

Keep in mind that Disney was from Marceline, Missouri which was a Santa Fe division point in those days.

Re: Nacodoches loco

And what was the "Lame-Brained" reason for cutting a part that's no longer made.?

Can't be due to the length, any Low Boy 4 Axle Float trailer should have been able to haul this with minimal effort,

I know several trucking & moving companies that have handled MUCH LARGER and heavier loads in both USA and Canada.

Re: Nacodoches loco

It looks to me like it is a cutting wheel on a grinder type machine, not an acetylene torch that is doing the cutting.  it would make for a cleaner cut.

Looks like a cutting disk to me. Also, no hoses for a torch.
