|Burnished and gleaming
in the early morning sunlight, one of Frisco’s handsome 4-8-2’s
crests Hancock Hill with St. Louis San Francisco’s eleven
car Meteor en route to Oklahoma City on its 542-mile journey from
St. Louis. Introduced in 1902, the Meteor was the flagship of the
Frisco. The passengers aboard this premier train are awakening to
a magnificent sunrise, eager to get home for the holidays.
