We see the passenger special of "Lexington Group" members passing Kentucky Street on Sept. 27, 1985. They overnighted at the Piggyback ramp in southwest Memphis before continuing their trip to Pine Bluff the next day.

On Sept. 28, 1985 we see that "Lexington Group" passenger train entering the Cotton Belt mainline at Brinkley, AR off the former Rock Island line to Memphis which it once shared.

Hard hats and steel toed shoes required.
