MP 8003 - "Screaming Eagle", Missouri Pacific
Title:  MP 8003 - "Screaming Eagle", Missouri Pacific
Description:  Unfortunately the b&w photo of the Raymond Loewy inspired blue with silver trim doesn't show the beautiful color scheme in this circa 1955 photo at the Kingsville, MO, depot. The unit would be renumbered later to #46. Note the crew member refilling the unit. This loco is new to this site. The date is an approxmation and with Rick Morgan's comment below, was able to identify the location as Kingsville, TX. The station built in 1904 is now the town's train depot meuseum and very well preserved.
