It stretched roughly 40 miles along a circuitous route between Paris and Dardanelle, via Subiaco and Scranton. The eastern half of the line between Scranton and Dardanelle was abandoned by 1945, with the rest of the line closing down in 1962."

WAB 2722 - Wabash Rwy
Title:  WAB 2722 - Wabash Rwy
Description:  Built by either International Car Company in Kent, Ohio or the Wabash shops in Decatur, IL, this Wabash caboose has the slanting cupola windows which were prone to leaking according to some sources. Beginning with #2830 in 1951, a heavier aluminum framed rectangular window was used. This Wabash caboose was fortunate enough eventually to end up on display in downtown Moberly, MO, the Wabash division point and probably second only to Decatur, IL, as an important Wabash hub. It is next to the former Railway Express building and railroad museum. Unknown photographer

WP 921D - Western Pacific
Title:  WP 921D - Western Pacific

According to the Western Pacific RR Museum, the home of this retired F7, it was one of the last units delivered to WP's first order of F7's in February of 1950. In 1977, it was sent to Morrison-Knudson in Boise, ID for rebuilding and repainted in the classic orange and silver Zephyr paint scheme. It and 3 other F7 units were used by WP for publicity. After the UP merger, #921-D was retired and donated to Fether River Rail Society and into the Western Pacific RR Museum.

LN E6A #770 - Louisville & Nashville
Title:  LN E6A #770 - Louisville & Nashville
Description:  Beautiful profile captured by an unknown photographer, circa 1972, at the Kentucky Rwy Museum. According to NRHS website "Louisville & Nashville E6A diesel locomotive no. 770 was built in 1942 by the Electro Motive Division of GM. After its inaugural run from Louisville to Nashville, the locomotive regularly powered the road’s flagship passenger trains. Number 770 was retired in 1968 and donated to the Kentucky Railway Museum. One of only two surviving E6A models, no. 770 is the only L&N passenger diesel to be preserved. The rarity of the model, its 70 year-age and distinctive slanted-nose, as well as the historic L&N trains it pulled, qualifies it for the National Register of Historic Places."
