Welcome to the Missouri Pacific Historical Society website. Whether this is your first visit or your 100th we hope that you will clearly see why we proudly promote the rich heritage of the mighty MoPac, Texas & Pacific, Chicago & Eastern Illinois, Missouri-Illinois, Kansas Oklahoma & Gulf, and all the other roads that were a part of the MP family. We warmly extend our invitation to you to join the Society and help keep this history alive.

The current year brought a change in the terms of membership. We no longer base membership on the calendar year. Membership now starts on the date we receive your initial dues payment. At that point, you are a member for the next 12 months. If you were a member for 2014 and you pay for your 2015 renewal on time, your start date, in effect, will be January 1. If you fail to renew in a timely manner, your start date will potentially change to something later in the year.
Current members need to make their renewal payment on a timely basis or their membership will lapse and could potentially cause them to miss some issues of The Eagle.
The first 2015 issue of The Eagle will be going to press in the very near future. The size of the press run will be based on the number of paid members at that time. If you wait too long, your membership will start with the following issue and that means you will have missed the first issue of the year.
There will be a few extras printed to cover some last minute renewals and there will be 30 issues for the Company Store. Outside of some additional issues that go to hobby shops, there will be no more. We are not printing a hundred extra issues to cover those that renew late.
Here is the bottom line. If you don't want to miss any issues of The Eagle, renew now. If you are contemplating becoming a member, join now. You can still get all four issues of The Eagle for this year.
Don't hesitate, send your money now.

Buy & Sell on eBay to Support MPHS
You can support the MPHS when you buy and sell on eBay through the eBay Giving Works program. Here’s how. Click Here to visit eBay’s MPHS Giving Works and follow the directions. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see any items currently for sale on eBay that a portion of the proceeds benefit the MPHS.
Feel free to share the MPHS link on any social media site you use, with any potential donor. Once transactions are completed the funds are transferred to the MPHS to help our efforts to preserve the heritage of the Missouri Pacific Railroad. Here is your chance to use eBay to sell your items and also support the work of the MPHS at the same time.
When you sell an item and select the MPHS as your Giving Works participant, the percentage you chose to donate is also used to reduce your eBay listing fees if the item sells. eBay Giving Works tracks your donations and provides the necessary paperwork for tax deduction purposes.
We hope you will consider doing this next time you have something to buy or sell on eBay.
You can support the MPHS by using AmazonSmile to make your puchases. This works just like the regular Amazon site, but Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price to Missouri Pacific Historical Society. Follow this link: http://smile.amazon.com/ch/37-1107461. Remember, only purchases made at smile.amazon.com will result in donations.
