Southern Belle
Title:  Southern Belle
Description:  We get a more abstract look at a F-Unit Nose on KCS 34 at KCUS. I'm glad KCS painted their business train locomotives in this scheme. Dave and I spoke about how we wished that they would, and 3 weeks later, we found out they were going to.

KCS Special Business Train
Title:  KCS Special Business Train
Description:  It's a good day when you can get 4 matching F-Units in the same shot. Closer to the camera we have the KCS Southern Belle's power, and in the distance we have the former KCS 4, which was one used in the same capacity on the business train, back when all 4 wore the Brunswick Green like the passenger cars. Today #34 lives at Kansas City Union Station on display. The 2012 Holiday Express will wrap up in a few hours, and the A-B-A set will blast south with the Belle back to Shreveport and leave their matching sister behind.
