Mena, Polk County - First photo = the Kansas City Southern Railroad steam engine, with it's engineer, that we called the "local" or "switch engine" about 1945. It ran between Dequeen and Heavener Oklahoma and was used to deliver loaded rail cars and pick up empties. There is a long grade through the mountains between Mena and Heavener and some times it was used as a "pusher engine" to help long trains get over that grade. Second photo = I doubt many people now living in Mena know that at one time KCS had a round house and rail yard in Mena. It was moved to Heavener some time after 1940. The scale of the map is so small I marked the round house with the red arrow, and you can see the rail yard. If your computer is set up so you can zoom in, you can see the round house in detail. It was located on the north side of the RR between 8th and 9th Street.

West Little Rock - Yes, the wind did blow, back in February too. I would get set up perpendicular to the wind, then it would change and I'd have to move. Took 41 exposures to get these three.
