The Last Eagle  Contributor's Pick!       
Hi everyone, I'm Joe Falvey, former MP/UP Road Foreman of Engines for the Poplar Bluff Area from 1968-1991. I have had Zach Pumphery start this archive so I can display some of my hundreds of shots that I had taken on the job during my career or collected. I had worked on the TP/MP in San Antonio before I was transfered up here in 1968. Any who, this is supposed to be the last northbound Missouri Pacific Texas Eagle, train number 22. As you can see it was 2 cars long and everything by that time was Jenks Blue. The photo was taken in front of the Poplar Bluff depot.
