Louisiana & Arkansas Railway Ten Wheeler Painting
« on: May 22, 2020, 04:03:52 PM »
My A&S paint shop has a small ten wheeler up next for painting. This is a United/PFM brass loco 4-6-0  known as a ten wheeler. 750 of this model was made by Sam Hongsa in 1976 and sold new for $160.00. While visiting Cliff Powers the Babe bought this from Cliff for $100.00.



The L&A referred to this little loco as the "Hustler". It ran as an overnight train from New Orleans and Shreveport, LA.

The A&S RR will renumber and letter this one for the Atlantic Coast Line.

This photo was taken from the 1977 PFM 14th Edition Cartalog. I already have it in pieces, cleaned and ready to paint.



If you hate plan A, you are certainly not going to like plan B!
