    In the 1950s and 60s, I rode the Sunnyland several times and watched and paced it many times. Its standard consist was two storage mail and express cars, an RPO-baggage and a 760, 1060 or 1200 modernized coach. Sundays there was no RPO, and many times the train would be expanded to six cars with extra head end cars or coaches. Here is #807 crossing Plattin Creek at Crystal City.

    The last shot is the coach passing through the Mississippi River settlement known as "Seventy-Six."

    Ken, I have to admit that from the first time I saw them, I have coveted those cars! My task is to build two sets of Sunnyland cars for my railroad, and.. two sets of Memphian cars.

    The cars are all Walthers wood and metal kits, modified to be authentic Frisco.
