Christmas Card: The Eagle Flies Over the Lake
Hope you're well on your way to a warm and joyous holiday.
The Eagle Flies Over the
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.
