|HOME Power Cabooses Rolling Stock MoW Depots|
vintage photos cover Missouri Pacific equipment seen between the late
1960's to the mid 1970's, many in the Wichita area. Most are passenger
and freight, some MofW, and a few cabooses. There's even a few shots of
the elusive "Mighty Mouse" geep.
For now, only couple of random thumbnail images are displayed to give
a quick sample of what's covered.
The photos will be divided into 7 parts to lower page loading times... see below menu.
