Frisco 1352 in Missouri
Author: zoohogger

Traveling for work in either 1982 or 3 I happened upon the Intercontinental scrap yard. Is Riverside the town?  1352 was sitting close to the fence. I had no telephoto and the place was littered with UP gas turbines and other such oddities.
Wish I would have had a drone to record all that was there.  Did one of you get there and take photos?

Yes it was in Riverside, MO for a little bit. Now it’s sitting in the former C&IM single stall engine house in Taylorville, IL. The American Steam Railroad in Ohio owns 1352 but since they got Reading 2100 ol 1352 has just sat in Illinois forgotten.

I wonder what happened to the ex-MILW skytop lounge in CN colors in the first pic.

Probably the one with MLW 261? I think it's the only operating one left.

I don't think it was the Cedar Rapids that the 261 group has

Was this the Frisco steam loco that was being restored by a private party, near Taylorville, Illinois?

That's the one.  As I recall, Pat Cravens from the 1522 restoration was involved at one time.  Obviously, nothing came of it.

Coffee Creek Skytop in Alamosa, CO, Oct 2020
Author: cozephyr

Milwuakee Road COFFEE CREEK is stored at Alamosa, Colorado, in recent years (2019-2021).

The former Lake Superior & Ispheming #20 in the distance was moved from Alamosa, CO, to a town in Texas in mid-October 2020.  Some 42 pieces of equipment were up for sale account Iowa Pacific defaulted on a bank loan (receivership).
