Wow.  Very nice shot.  Old paint scheme.  The Alcos and F units kept this quiet branch of the GM&O thru Mexico and Higginsville, MO to KCMO in business.

Cool shot! And sorta familiar. Back in 2013 I did an extensive, 4-part series of the GM&O between Kansas City & Mexico, MO. It was all Gibson Collection photography, and it was a blast to edit and write up. Do a TO search over my screen name for "Motoring across Missouri" and it should get you all 4 parts. Lots of motorcar action to be seen...

Great photo. A reiteration of a very recent post below. I miss all the locos of the late 40's and 50's. So much more interesting that today's functional building block locos. Yawn!!!

Most excellent vintage shot.  I love seeing the engineer on the ALCO with his rear door latched open.  The door catch was built into the side of the short hood.  Engineers had to be a little careful with the rear cab door latched open.  A hard coupling could unseat an unprepared engineer and send him through the open doorway.
