On this date in 1960
Author: burlingtonjohn

The little train that did it, Zephyr 9900 (aka the Pioneer Zephyr) made its last run.  The attached photo was taken in the mid fifties at Palmyra Missouri by my mentor, the late Wayne Beever.

Thanks for sharing this! When the original "Zephyr" finished its nationwide tour, it was assigned to run from Lincoln to Omaha and Kansas City each day back in the mid 1930's. My Grandpas was one of the men who serviced and maintained this train (and the UP M-10000) during their layovers at Kansas City Union Station... 

Thanks so much for the look back!

Best wishes,

ShastaDaylight
