KCS Steam Locomotives

Postby Thomas I » Sat Feb 28, 2009 6:11 pm

Hello!

I am looking for a Kansas City Southern steam locomotive roster. Is there someone available in the net or has sombody one, and can send me a copy?
If not, I have the following question:
Who manufactured the classes M-22, E-37, D-25 and G and when ( year)?

Thanks
Thomas

"Steam Locomotives of the Kansas City Southern" by Donald G. Campbell, is easily obtainable and at a very reasonable price (Paper). Do a google search or try Bookfinder.com. There was no M class at all. Various D classes were 4-6-0s built by a variety of builders over many years. E Class were 2-8-0s, the largest group, E-3, 48 engines built by Pittsburgh and Baldwin between 1906 and 1908. The G class were two series of 2-8-8-0s totalling 17 engines and one class of 0-6-6-0 with 12 engines.

The above book does not include Louisiana and Arkansas locos which were included after 1940.

"Not available in the European Union at the moment" says amazon. But they have it used - for $62.04 (!!!). :( :(
A new one $14.95 in the States is very reasonable - a used one for $62.04 is usury.

It seems I have to made a wish-list and to travel to the USA to buy books... :-D
