|KCS F7 4053 at Heavener, Oklahoma on an unknown day in October 1979, Kodachrome by Paul L. Strang, Chuck Zeiler collection. Number 4053 was built as L&A F3A 58D in March 1948 (c/n 4931), was renumbered to 85 on January 1, 1957, and renumbered again to 4053 on April 3, 1978, sold for scrap on September 9, 1986 to George T. Cook. It was rebuilt to F9 specifications on February 14, 1954, and rebuilt again on March 29, 1956. It's unclear if the rebuildings were upgrades or wreck repairs. It looks like they touched up a bit around the front door. Paul adds this; As I recall, the banding around the nose door occurred when it was welded shut.
