Missouri Pacific 2242 sits at the Union Pacific yard in Topeka, Ks in June 1993. MP 2242 is a GP38. At Reading, Ks on the Santa Fe Topeka Subdivision the historic semaphore signals await the next train as the sun sets. Little did they know their job was almost done. A year or two later the semaphores were removed and replaced with newer signals. Now all the semaphores on the Topeka sub are gone. Photo by Eric Burris
