Remarks & Notes 
Mopac's Eagle looks like it's outbound to Pueblo with lots of head end traffic on KCT trackage. KC Municipal Stadium lights are seen in the distance, home of the A's and where the Beatles played but 3 years earlier. Mopac's leader #19 was twenty years old at this point in time, having come on the property in 1947, a steam slayer. But, the real slayer was the USPS pulling all mail off passenger trains late in 1967..the death knell for many trains in the era before Amtrak. As for Municipal Stadium, well, it too died shortly after the 1967 baseball season, the A's finishing 29.5 games behind the Red Sox with a record of 62-99. The A's split for Oakland and a young Reggie Jackson invigorated that franchise.
