The Alton & Southern was, and still is, a switching railroad in the St. Louis area. It was owned and operated by MoPac and CN&W. After purchasing the road on May 9, 1968, the two roads painted the engines with yellow hoods (after CN&W), blue cabs and frames (after MoPac), and a new A&S herald (a clear hybrid of both road's) on the cab. Today, the Alton & Southern is still around, alive and well, under the ownership of Union Pacific.
