MoPac Motorcars & Doodlebugs

The Missouri Pacific and her subsidiaries commonly employed the Sykes-built motorcars (aka "Doodlebugs") on some local passenger runs. These were originally built as gas-mechanical, then in 1927 and '29, these were rebuilt at MP's Sedalia shops to gas-electrics. They also recieved a new look on their fronts with a large grill and heavy snowplow.

Some doodlebugs tugged a baggage-mail car built to accomadate this purpose.
