I didn't want to hijack the original thread, but this engine came up on a recent thread involving US locomotives sent to Korea.

Thanks so much for bringing this particular one up. I was not aware of the one additional Mike that was later added to the order.

Pity that these machines operated on a part of the Frisco where there just wasn't a lot or recording on film. If ever a freight engine said kick ass, this class was it. I do wonder about the t.e. rating as it is only a little above the 4100 class Mikes that had the same size drivers and cylinders, but 210 lbs vs. the 235 on the 4200s.

I consider myself blessed to have a pair of plates off of Frisco engines, 56137 of off 1500 and 61290 off of one of the 4200s ( can't recall the number from memory, 4210 or 4211 maybe).

Tom--

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I thought I'd point out that the "Frisco 4220" is one example of this forum's famous April Fools Jokes. Sorry for the raincloud.

(Sheepish grin) You can stop looking for the Frisco engine, there was no such engine as the 4220. 4200-4219 were huge 2-8-2s and the Frisco never owned a 2-8-4.
I tried to resist doing that, but I couldn't pass a chance like that. April Fool!

That's pretty good, a year and a half later and it's still snaring one every now and then.

Sorry Tom.

I've yet to see a really good action shot of one of them.
