Remarks & Notes 
A typical midwestern scene -- Rock Island mail train No. 39 with a single coach on the rear leaves Herington, Kansas on May 31, 1965 to continue its run to Tucumcari, N.M. to be handed over to the S.P. (and on to Calif.). FP-7 409 will get a rest there overnight while it waits for eastbound counterpart No. 40 to arrive. The pair of trains used to be named "Imperial" but the name was quietly dropped from the timetables. Doubtlessly after the Memorial Day weekend, some rancher will be glad to get his new John Deere implement. After merger with the S.P., the stone depot at Herington did not survive.
