A southbound Burlington Northern freight approaches Douglas, Wyoming, on the BN’s Casper Subdivision on the morning of May 12, 1995. BN No. 3100 is the railroad’s first EMD GP50, ordered by Frisco as No. 791 around the time of the merger and the only one of 10 ordered by the railroad delivered in orange and white Frisco colors, but quickly renumbered 3100, and eventually repainted in Cascade green paint. The empty grade in the background is the abandoned Chicago & North Western line to Lander nicknamed the “Cowboy Line.”
This album will have all the Frisco pictures I find. My family moved to Ada Oklahoma in 1964 and Frisco was the most active line in Ada. Many of our friends had parents who worked for Frisco Railroad. This will be pictures of anything Frisco.
