Fairbanks - Morse C-Liners
Shots of these have gotta be rare.... A very cool shot, to be sure!
These were all retired by 1967. Hard to believe that was already 40 years ago!
40 years! Wow.. How many did CMStP&P roster?
CFA16-4= 12 units
CFB16-4= 6 units.
More than I imagined; I'm guessing the CFA16-4 means 'cowl, freight, Alco, 1600HP, 4 axles?
Right now, I can't recall what the entire string represents. 16= 1600hp. 4= 4 axles. "A" meaning A or lead/cab unit. But these are not ALCo. They were Fairbanks Morse "C-Liners."
I knew that... 'F' must mean F-M.. The 'A' and 'B' seem self explanatory. Gee, I need to wake up!
Take one tunnel, and call me in the morning! Ha ha.
I guess you noticed the b-unit is an imposter.
Yes. This was common. They had plenty of EMD B units available.
