The Katy never had the most powerful or the largest roster
of steam engines, but they were always clean, trim and well maintained.
The running boards and wheels were trimmed in white, stardards that were
maintained till the final days of the iron horse. The trademake red
M-K-T enameled herald on the engine tenders made Katy steam power standout
from all others.
