S-8 1204A & B
Virginia, Minn. May 20, 1973
1204A&B were acquired by U.S. Steel's Fairless Works for parts, 7/1980
Thanks to Tim Darnell for the following photos.
"US Steel acquired 5 S8A cow and 6 S8B calves back in 1980 plus some other ex-Oliver Mining switchers.
Some were used for parts, some saw service. My shots were taken in 1983 when they were scrapping most of
the FM's and Baldwins. I was able to get shots of the scrapline with a 400mm and 200mm lens (as security
was VERY tight there) from a public road."
