MKT home made F3 B unit locomotive 401B at Argyle, Texas

Train 106 pauses briefly near Argyle on October 29, 1986. It is getting a little too late to take pictures from this side of the train. Highway 377 runs on the east side of the tracks, so the easiest time to chase trains along this stretch is in the morning. Disk 90

MKT F3 locomotive 401B at Argyle, Texas

The last locomotive in the power consist was engine 401B, a rebuilt F3. The MKT upgraded this locomotive along with several others to 1,750 horsepower and converted them to serve as B units in early 1975. At the time this picture was taken, the 401B was the last one of this type serving on the railroad. It would be retired in 1988.
