Another Of MoPac's Last
Jim Scribbins caught MoPac 2-8-0 #49 in the yard at Dupo, Illinois, on September 5th, 1953. This was getting toward the end for steam, with the last run being April 7th, 1955, as two Consolidations hauled a string of dead sisters from Bush to Dupo and the scrap yards.
Want a look back at this era? Check out this LINK to the St. Louis Post Dispatch multimedia page on the end of MoPac steam. It's worth a look.
