  1. Did the lead unit originally begin as a TFM unit or did it begin as a Kansas City Southern unit? Just had to ask 'cause I know that many ex-KCS units were allocated to its Mexican affiliate while several of KCS de Mexico's ex-TFM units have often been allocated to the American parent company.

  2. According to RR Pictures Archive, KCSM 4546 started out as a TFM unit.
