Franklin & Missouri Pacific Alco

This photo appears to have been taken on a table top diorama using loose gravel as a ground cover.  A portion of the table may be visable in the extreme foreground.  It appears to date from 1959 or 1960 based on the use of regular American Flyer track rather than Pikemaster track which was introduced in 1961.   This shot found its way into Gilbert advertising in a 1959-1960 brochure shown below and was one of only a few that made it in full color.
