Description

The Missouri Pacific Railroad (MP), aka MoPac, was one of the first railroads in the USA west of the Mississippi River. Headquartered in St. Louis, MoPac grew from dozens of predecessors and mergers and ran throughout Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas, claiming 13,318 miles of track in 1967, not including that of several of its major subsidiaries! MoPac operated a fleet of more than 1,500 diesel locomotives, hauling grain, TOFC (Trailer on Flat Car), coal, ore, autos, and dry goods. MoPac's premier passenger trains were collectively known as "Eagles." In 1980 the Missouri Pacific Railroad was purchased by the Union Pacific Railroad, and merged with the Western Pacific Railroad in 1982, creating the largest system in its day, the "Pacific Rail Systems." Because of lawsuits and outstanding bonds, the merger didn't become official until 1997.
