COE 1136 - the former MoPac 1136 (believed to have been origianlly assigned to Kansas City, MO) at Herrin, IL. The former MP SW-1200 is now on the Crab Orchard & Egyptian Railroad in Marion, IL. #1136 and #1147 were delivered to the CO&E September, 1986 still in full MP paint. "I spent a considerable amount of time removing 7 coats of MP Jenks blue from the 1136 while employed by the CO&E before it was sent back to PNC for repainting." Edward reports. - Edward Bridges photo (Unofficial Historian of the CO&E Yahoo! Groups : CrabOrchardandEgyptianRailroad)

COE 1161 - the former MoPac 1161 (believed to have been origianlly assigned to Houston, TX) at Marion, IL. #1161 was delivered in full CO&E colors April, 1987. - photo: Edward Bridges (Unofficial Historian of the CO&E Yahoo! Groups : CrabOrchardandEgyptianRailroad )

The original MoPac marker lights are still on the CO&E units. #1147 also still retained its markers while on the CO&E. The CO&E had originally thought about renumbering the #1136 to #13, #1147 to #14, and #1161 to #16 (eliminating the first and last digits of the original numbers) but they decided against this practice before they started painting the units. The CO&E had also thought about painting them in the same scheme as the 35 ton Davenport. Black with white lettering and trim. 

PT 1268 - the former MoPac 1268, was built 2/65 and retired by MoPac and sold to Chrome in 6/85. The photographer, John Cockle, works for a small switching carrier in Richmond, CA called Parr Terminal Railroad. The company now owns an ex-MP SW1200 #1268, shown here in her current dress. 6/6/01 - John L. Cockle photo
