Remarks: We enjoyed a "Day Out With Thomas" in East St. Louis, IL on this beautiful crisp late October afternoon. The Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis provided the trackage and the motive power to assist Thomas in his endeavors. Mid America Railcar Leasing provided the passenger cars. The first three cars are ex Chicago Metra commuter cars, while the last 3 cars are Budd-built streamlined cars from the 1950's. A good time was had by both the young and the young-at-heart!!
