CB&Q 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4943
Title:  CB&Q 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4943
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4943 at Bevier, Missouri on June 9, 1959, photograph by S. Kistler, print by Gordon C. Bassett, Chuck Zeiler collection. This locomotive was leased to the Bevier & Southern Railroad and they applied the slogan seen on the tender. Number 4943 was built by Baldwin in May 1923 (c/n 56575) and is presumed to have been scrapped around 1961 when it was replaced on the B&S by CB&Q 4963 due to expired flues on 4943.

CB&Q 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4943
Title:  CB&Q 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4943
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad 2-8-2 Class O-1-A 4943 at Ardmore, Missouri on November 11, 1960, Kodachrome by unknown photographer, Chuck Zeiler collection. Built by Baldwin in May 1923 (c/n 56575), this locomotive was leased to the ten mile coal hauler Bevier & Southern in 1959 to replace CB&Q 4955, who's flues had expired. It worked on the B&S until 1963, when it was eventually replaced See Comment below, thanks L. Beckman) with CB&Q NW2 9400A. Presumably the slogan, Have Train - Will Haul, was borrowed from the popular television show of the late 1950's, early 1960's, Have Gun - Will Travel.
