Remarks & Notes 
In mid-1965, it was still possible to catch an Alco PA nosing out of Kansas City Union Station with Santa Fe train 7, the Fast Mail Express for Los Angeles. On April 25, the 65 is just getting underway, with mail storage cars, express, baggage, as many as four RPOs, deadhead equipment, and, by law, one rider coach. Soon, the Fast Mail will more than live up to its name, rolling its 25 or 30 cars at Super Chief speeds across the Kansas plains.
