Remarks & Notes 
On a hazy, humid March morning in 1967, Kansas City Southern Train 1, the Southern Belle, is just ten minutes out of Union Station as it makes its way along Kansas City Terminal trackage near Van Brunt Boulevard. Just over 21 hours from now, after a leisurely 40-mph ramble through Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana, the consist of head-end cars, RPO, coaches, sleeper and tavern/observation car will pull into New Orleans and the party will begin. Lead unit E7A 12, purchased in 1962 from Maine Central by KCS subsidiary Louisiana & Arkansas, is dazzling in the original Belle livery of dark Brunswick green, yellow and red, a paint scheme that to the joy of photographers the railroad will adopt decades later for all its diesels.
