The GH&H was a joint line with the MKT and Missouri Pacific.
Maybe that is where they came from.

Good stuff, as usual! And in image #1 it looks like it was a HOT day in April, with both cab doors open... :^)

Thanks for the trip back to a much more pleasant time. Here is a cell phone shot from today. With the bridges in 1990 and opiod crisis of the 2000's came homeless camps. There is a fairly large one off to my left and behind me.
