The Texas and Pacific Railway: Route of the Eagles

The Texas and Pacific participated with the Missouri Pacific Railroad in the operation of the “Texas Eagles” from St. Louis, with one going to and from Dallas-Fort Worth and all the way to El Paso, Texas, and the other going to Houston and San Antonio. In 1950 Planetarium dome cars were ordered for the Eagles, and at that time, the Texas and Pacific owned 45 passenger locomotives (10 of which were diesels), and 209 passenger cars.
