The quiet of an autumn afternoon in Whitesboro, TX is broken as train 106 rumbles through town on October 29, 1986. We chased this train north from Fort Worth so you will see several more pictures of this train in this series. The first picture was taken on the run as I was trying to get up to the best spot on bridge. The train has engines 605, 219, and 401B with 95 cars. The MKT turned the F3 into a booster unit in 1975. The railroad painted over the windows and number board. Notice the difference in color of the ballast on the two different railroad lines. You rarely see that on a model railroad. Disk 90
