Through Pullman Question - St. Louis
Author: train1275

Was there ever a through Pullman service between St. Louis and Kansas City for an ATSF connection west ?

Yes, in 1939 for example, a sleeper operated St. L - LA on Santa Fe California Limited daily, with the portion east of KC alternating between the Alton/Q, the MP, and the Wabash. I think at another time the connection was on the MP daily.

In the early 1950s, there was also a St. Louis - Los Angeles 6-6-4 sleeper than ran on the Mopac to Kansas City and onto LA via the RI/SP Golden State Limited.  From St. Louis it went WB on the Colorado Eagle and returned EB on the Sunflower.
