    Thanks to the wife of my Edward Jones rep, Bridgette (Riley) Mitchell, we have the Memphis Terminal Industry Schematics April 24, 1970 from her grandfather's (William (Bill) Henry Riley) collection.

    Keith -
    Thanks a bunch for posting the 1970 Memphis Schematics sheets. Back in the 1970-1971 days, I was a field sales rep for Monsanto serving the soap and detergents business, as well as the food ingredient business - we were market leaders in both. Memphis was my second biggest sales market after St Louis. I usually ran down to Memphis about every three-four weeks. The 1970 schematics list all my customers who were served by the Frisco, which was quite a few. I have enjoyed seeing the names of them again - we had a good market in Memphis. I had the chance to do some train watching down there as well in between sales calls, but I didn't have time to take any photos!
    Those were good days - my blue Ford company car and I ran all over the segments of MO, IL, KY, TN, AR, and IA that made up my territory.
