The Missouri Pacific became a part of the Union Pacific in late 1982. By the mid eighties, yellow power was making inroads with Union Pacific power alongside power lettered Missouri Pacific in yellow paint. But even in the mid and late 80’s, consists of pure blue Missouri Pacific power could still be found.

In this program, we see pure MoPac; there are no yellow diesels here; only MoPac blue. Filmed from 1985 to 1989, this may have been U.P. territory, but the spirit of the Missouri Pacific was still alive. Many of the scenes in this program were shot at Mount Vernon and Salem, Illinois. Other locations include Saint Louis and Kirkwood, Missouri.

    First, I LOVE the Diverging Clear Heritage Series! I love the rural locations of Illinois of all of their videos!!! This video takes me back to the 1980s and the few times that I got to railfan the Missouri Pacific (The MOP or MOPAC for short) Even though all of these scenes were shot after the UP takeover this is sheer MOPAC….I LOVE IT!!!! Plenty of great motive power consists, and plenty of MOPAC cabooses at the end of each train!
