This locomotive was spotted in Port Sutton, just South of Tampa, FL, switching a cut of covered hoppers on early Saturday morning 04/10/2011. What type of locomotive is it? And what company is Kinder Morgan? And how many locomotives does it have? TIA.

Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE: KMI) is an American energy company. It is also, through a subsidiary, the general partner of and owner of many of the interests in Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, a publicly traded pipeline and terminal limited partnership.

Kinder Morgan Energy partners, L.P. is a leading pipeline transportation and energy storage company in North America. Kinder Morgan owns or operates approximately 26,000 miles of pipelines transporting primarily natural gas, crude oil, and petroleum products. Kinder Morgan also owns about 170 terminals that store and handle products such as gasoline, coal, and petroleum coke. Kinder Morgan is also the leading provider of carbon dioxide, commonly called CO2 for enhanced oil recovery projects in North America.

In addition to its role in the energy transportation and storage industry, Kinder Morgan operates in two major oil fields in Texas: the Yates Oil Field and the SACROC Unit. Kinder Morgan produces approximately 55,000 barrels per day between the two areas, and claims to be the second-largest oil producer in Texas.[

Looks like the old IMC 204 judging from the paint scheme and the surroundings, I think the old AT&SF number was 2472. This locomotive is a round roof CF7 with four stacks, that the Santa Fe Cleburne Texas shops rebuilt from old f-units during the 1970's. If you want to read more about these locomotives and their history, may I suggest reading Cary F. Poole's book titled; CF7s From Cleburne to Everywhere, published by The Railroad Press. It is an excellent read with tons of pictures, full roster info and dispositions, and a must for anyone interested in these odd diesels.
