Another Of MoPac's Last
Author: MaryMcPherson

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.

This LINK is to the news story of the last steam run.
