Christmas CardThe Eagle Flies Over the Lake

No Longer Available

Missouri Pacific #8018 in the night


Hope you're well on your way to a warm and joyous holiday.

Additional Verse:

The Eagle Flies Over the Lake Due to heavy snows along its route, Missouri Pacific's Train No. 11, the Colorado Eagle, is running several hours late on its journey from St. Louis to Denver one moonlit December night in the early 1950s. As the beautiful blue and gray Alco PA crests the highest point on its trip at Palmer Lake, Colorado, a southbound Rio Grande freight train passes on the other side of the lake. The villagers as well as the Eagle's passengers are peacefully sleeping and probably won't notice the spectacle of the trains passing under the star on Sundance Mountain. The star made its first appearance in 1935 and has been a joyous celebration of the holiday season ever since.
