EternalFlame1891's avatar
Yes it is! It should be on the MPBHO after it is at PB which it should already be there by now, bud!

Blah, that's a Rabbit Line train. Maybe I will catch it on the outbound back to Arkansas. I've never seen one in person!

This the first time I have ever seen one in the STL area!

Good catch! Not that it makes the proud name of Pan Am being reduced to some small-time earthbound transportation company any better.
