Wanted: Cotton Belt Engine flix...

Recommended Posts

Well, I don't live in the West, although I used to live on the St. Louis Southwestern (AKA Cotton Belt) mainline in a small town in Texas, but Im looking for some Cotton Belt engine flix(black paintscheme w/ red on the front and rear nose, white lettering) , mainly side flix or at a slight angle. I've developed an interest for this fallen flag, once UP gobbled up SP and affiliated SSW, and trying to get my hands on some hard copy pictures. Im willing to trade railfan flix from the South or whatever, any help is appreciated. Feel free to post here or email me.

Thanks for looking into getting some flix for me SPflatty, have the Cotton Belt units in your yard been downgraded to switching the yard? I guess UP felt they couldn't spare the yellow paint for em...keep me posted if you catch em.

 

ZedisDed, sounds like a catch, I dunno if you heard but we caught some interesting stuff rolling last Sat, I'll drop you an email.
