Kansas City Southern's "Ghost" Locomotives
KCS SW1500 photo here
Most of the KCS yard power had been built prior to 1950. Their replacements came in the form of new SW1500s. First of the 1500-hp switchers arrived on the property in November 1966; a total of 43 locos were purchased new. W.D. Caileff, jr. caught the 1501 on film in December soon after delivery.
