SLCC 101 - St. Louis, MO

Rail Cruise America's St. Louis Car Company (SLCC) 101 (an EMD F9PHA) sits in one of the rail storage tracks at St. Louis Union Station. The locomotive was part of Rail Cruise America's dinner train that operated out of Union Station for many years. The dinner train operation was shut down sometime in 2005 and later on the various locomotives and passenger rail cars were sold off to the Kansas City Southern Railroad. The locomotives, two F9PHAs and two F7Bs, were then sold to Norfolk Southern (NS) for use with NS' executive train. I believe most of the passenger cars were retained by KCS for use on its executive train.

  1. Nice!  Sad it shut down but glad the locos and cars got more use.

    I'm not sure if Kansas City Southern kept all of the cars they purchased from Rail Cruise America or if they sold some of them off. I do know the locomotives went to Norfolk Southern.
