Passenger Trains of Texas – Missouri Pacific

Description

Passenger Trains of Texas – Missouri Pacific – Hardcover
By Steve Allen Goen

This book is about “A time when the arrival of the passenger train was the high point of the day for towns across Texas. At one time almost every city and town in Texas was served by some type of passenger train. From the streamlined “name trains”, to the makes-all-stops mail and express trains, to “doodlebugs”, to “mixed trains”, Texas had it all. Join Steve as he takes you back in time when the arrival of the passenger train was the high point of the day for countless towns across Texas.

This book is Missouri Pacific only. Texas & Pacific will be another title coming in the future.

This title has 16 chapters featuring a variety of Missouri Pacific passenger trains that once operated in Texas. Trains include the Mineola Branch, Huntsville Branch, Sunshine Special, Texas Triangle, Texan, Gulf Coast Eagle, SAU&G, Houston North Shore, Valley Eagle, Orleanean, Pioneer, Southerner, Texas Eagle (Houston section), Aztec Eagle, Texas Eagle (San Antonio section), and the Brackenridge Eagle.
This book is a must have reference source for fans of the Missouri Pacific.
