‘Meramec River’ – Frisco Sleeper

Built by Pullman in 1947-48 specifically for the Meteor. The METEOR ran from St. Louis to Oklahoma City and had connecting cars to New York City (Pennsy) and Washington DC (Wabash), and Chicago (GM&O), and to Jersey City (B&O).

The Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis, is a great resource for this information and I have relied heavily on their publication on the Meteor. They also show consists in the 1950’s and 60’s with more head-end baggage and heavyweight Pullman Sleepers in the consists.

Another great train story! Photo is of sister car. But MERAMEC RIVER is exactly the same other then the name.

Aside from the quality, creativity and originality, you are to be commended for your ongoing commitment to this (GAC) series, and all of your series of trains over a period of so many years.  There is always something to look forward to. Keep up the great work!’ D. K.
