    You Frisco video buffs need to get hold of Green Frog's "Passenger Trains Of The 60's" DVD. There were originally three VHS volumes and they've now been combined into one DVD. There are probably FIFTY Frisco passenger train run-bys in the whole set. KC-Florida Special, Sunnyland and Southland. Also passenger trains of the SR, IC, L&N, SAL, C of GA., KCS and many others. Included are run-bys of the Southern Ry's version of the "Kansas City Florida Special."

    Volume 2, Frisco Racehorse E units at St. Louis Union Station.

    Also, a racehorse station stop at Barnhart. Nice little depot. Springfield shots as well.

    Toward the end, a shot of an ex-Frisco Geep working Union Station in Chicago, switching Amtrak cars, prior to being sold to CNW.

    Watching an issue of Railroad Video Quarterly tonight. Has about fifteen minutes of Frisco Racehorse passenger film, narrated by Art Stout, plus some assorted freight action, almost all in black.

    I think I was born about thirty years too late :(
