A Missouri Pacific fan from childhood. My siblings and I traveled from Poplar Bluff, Missouri to Little Rock, Arkansas to visit relatives many times in my youth.
in 1959 mother and I traveled from Poplar Bluff to California to visit two aunts, their husbands and families. We left Poplar Bluff on the Missouri Pacific Eagle, transferred to the Texas & Pacific Eagle then traveled Southern Pacific on to California. I suspect we arrived in Los Angeles but can't recall as I was only five at the time.
