SLIDESHOW: Restoring historic KCS Engine No. 1023
Work is underway on the restoration of Kansas City Southern Engine No. 1023, thought to be the last known surviving KCS steam engine. On Thursday it was sandblasted, and on Friday workers began applying primer. Next week they will paint the engine, and then work will begin on adding restored or fabricated parts to replace those that were vandalized, lost or crumbling. Built in 1906, the engine had been on static display at Pittsburg's Schlanger Park since 1955. Last September, it was moved to the historic Carona Depot in Carona, Kan.
