On April 13, 1963, I rode in the vestibule after breakfast in the diner "Oklahoma City". Here are a couple of shots showing the train, forward and to the rear.

These two units were the power for the #9 Meteor which arrived in Oklahoma City on Sept. 3, 1964.

I shot these locos heading to Union Station for trains scheduled to leave later in the monring May 1, 1965.

The power for the May 2, 1965 Meteor is seen backing into Union Station in St. Louis.

The #9 Meteor is seen stopped at the station in Monett, MO on May 29, 1965.
Then #10 Meteor is seen stopped at the station in Monett, MO.
Business car #2 was on the end of #10 Meteor.

This is the very last #9 Meteor stopped at the station in Rolla, MO on Sept. 15, 1965. The stream of red light is the rear light on a business car that is at the end of the very last #4 Will Rogers.
