Greg Stout

Morning Sun Books, 2017


This book starts out with color photos of Missouri Pacific steam pulling heavyweight trains. These photos are pretty much 3/4 wedge shots with not much more than the locomotives filling the frame. Quite a few trains are in the full Eagle paint with later pages containing photographs of the solid blue paint. Two pictures of #670, the "MotoRailer" in the Eagle paint scheme are neat.

Locations from all over Missouri Pacific routes where selected for the book. Many scenes are from St. Louis and Kansas City, but many smaller stations such as Laredo, Sedalia, Kirkwood, Corpus Christi and others appear. Motive power includes all types from Alco PAs to E-units, Geeps and switchers at the large terminals. A couple pictures of MoPac's bulk mail boxcars, later-day Amtrak service, business cars and the Chicago & Eastern Illinois round out the book. This volume has more extensive captions than most Morning Sun books.

The post war passenger service of the Missouri Pacific is examined across its far-reaching system as well as the road it absorbed to reach the Windy City, the Chicago & Eastern Illinois.

5 Stars
the opening steam action photos are large and atmospheric diesel photos mainly fairly large and have a sense of presence some are darker with more depth others lighter showing more detail double page shots are full frame and well done.would suit a seasoned collector looking for slightly different book.
