Remarks & Notes 
You wouldn’t know it to see it today, but Train 39, westbound near Herington, Kansas, was once the Imperial, a secondary but important passenger run between Chicago and Southern California. But on October 11, 1965, it’s just a miscellany of mail and express cars with an SP rider coach (note Daylight scheme) tacked onto the rear. Even so, FP7A 405 is geared to run easily at 65 mph, so 39 is making good time.

The Rock Island was an also-ran in the markets it served competing the likes of the Santa Fe Super Chief and Burlington Denver Zephyr, but it did its best to put on a good show.
