    That lady on the right and the guy hanging out the train door make this scene complete. The train itself is so neat no comments are required.

    Does anyone remember a motorcar called the Egyptian Zipper? It was one that was owned by C&EI also called a "Dinky"? also interested big time in a train called the Meadowlark which also belonged to C&EI. Any info and photo's would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Jeanne, This is an awesome photo and resembles the Egyptain Zipper considerably but still not it. I do thank you very much for this photo though as this was the month and year I was born.  Very worthwhile to save!  St. Louis is not that far from West Frankfort, Il but back in those days, it was. Takes about a little over an hour by automobile now, wonder how long it take by train back then. EdieKaye
