Frisco management noted in the 1936 Annual Report that it had achieved a modest victory by reversing declining passenger revenues. Revenues climbed by an impressive 28.8% or by $772,368 from 1935 levels. Management attributed the improvement to a general improvement in the economy, to changes in train schedules, and to improved running times between KC and Birmingham, and between St Louis and Oklahoma City. The Frisco management correctly identified that it had lost its short-haul traffic to the automobile and its long-haul passengers to the bus lines and airlines. The Frisco also credited more air-conditioned equipment and improved meal service with the addition of new “snack” cars. The 1936 Annual Report also included this curious remark, “Transportation of automobiles belonging to passengers has also attracted some business. It is hoped that these innovations will continue to bring the traveling public back to our railroad in increasing numbers.” Unfortunately, the Annual Report lacks specifics, and we are left to speculate about the details. …on which trains did the Frisco offer this service? This sounds like a natural fit for the KC-FS with connections to Pensacola, perhaps? …what equipment was used to handle automobiles? Double-door auto boxes equipped with steam/signal lines and high speed trucks? ... or did the Frisco handle the automobiles on regularly scheduled freight trains? Does anyone have a 1936 PTT, which might enlighten us further?
