ST. LOUIS–SAN FRANCISCO RAILWAY (FRISCO) 200

About St. Louis–San Francisco Railway (Frisco) 200

Built in 1941 for the St. Louis-San Francisco (Frisco) Railroad by the Baldwin Locomotive Works, this VO-1000 was the very first diesel locomotive ever acquired by that company. The 200 was later repowered with an EMD 567C prime mover, and reclassified as a VO-1000RP, indicating it is a repowered unit. This diesel switching locomotive was acquired in 2015 from the U.S. Navy in Crane, Indiana.
