From the early 1940s until the beginning of Amtrak in 1971, the Missouri Pacific Eagles rode the rails.
From St. Louis to the great Southwest, these trains provided safe, comfortable travel.

convenient transportation.
  The time table at left is from September 19, 1954. At that time the number of trains radiating out from the St. Louis Union Station was impressive.
   From St. Louis, passengers went all the way to El Paso, Houston, San Antonio, Denver, Omaha, and New Orleans without changing trains. Thru sleeping cars would take you all the way to California and even Mexico City.
