“Ship IT on the Frisco… the dependable one.” It’s called the Frisco, but it shows Alabama, Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas. The full name is St.Louis – San Francisco Railway. The train number is the 808. Here’s a nice free 1903 booklet from Archive.org or Open Library.

  1. In St. Louis there is old expression “He took the 808…” to describe the death of a person. Supposedly the 808 was the last train out of St. Louis Union Station. Can anyone verify this with some details??
