Ron Merrick's Missouri Pacific RR Photos Directory - Part One

Sorry, your browser doesn't support Java.

These vintage photos cover Missouri Pacific equipment seen between the late 1960's to the mid 1970's, many in the Wichita area. Most are passenger and freight, some MofW, and a few cabooses. There's even a few shots of the elusive "Mighty Mouse" geep. For now, only couple of random thumbnail images are displayed to give a quick sample of what's covered.

Since there a considerable amount and variety to Mr. Merrick's photos, I am creating this master index for these shots. Ron's notes on each shot are included
(details in blue type are notes that I added).

Ron Merrick is a member of the Missouri Pacific Historical Society and the MOPAC Group.

The photos will be divided into 7 parts to lower page loading times... see below menu.
