Quiet day at Newburg
Author: Frisco1522

A serene Sunday morning at Newburg,MO in 1943. Even the town loafers aren't hanging around the depot today. A break in traffic (rare for 1943) has left most of the yard empty.
Even the scenery folks are off today.

Neat shot! I'd love to be standing there next to you when 1522 comes rolling by on the point of a hot one!

Is that a "wall cloud" in the background?
PS - Really nice looking depot!

It's a dust storm.

Just because I have nothing better to do this evening.

Even used a photo of Newburg, flipped horizontal to match the direction of the original.

Structures are deadbang. Nice work!

Damn, that's freaking pretty, nice work, now if real backdrops were that easy we'd all be
doing layouts.

Wow that made the picture pop. Thanks for the trouble.
Maybe later I can post a roundhouse picture.

You'd know it if the 1522 came rolling in! Don was lucky to have his Dad let him accompany him to the Frisco roundhouse at Lindenwood when he was young. Also fortunate to pull the same throttle in excursion service that his Dad did on occasion when assigned to her in daily service. I wonder how many others out there in the steam preservation world can make that claim. Perhaps a future thread on the "Steam & Excursion" side.
Don- I've got a Hallmark Frisco 4-4-0 that needs a paint job with the full lining treatment...any interest?

Michael Perkins- Former MOT volunteer, later full time employee and way later among the first invited to the rebuild of the 1522. The day the cab was removed while she was sitting on the display track was really a "this is gonna happen" moment. Don can attest to this.
