Multicolor printed paper brochure issued in May 1984 to promote the new River Cities (Kansas City-St. Louis-New Orleans). The train extended existing Kansas City-St. Louis service east to Centralia, Ill., where through cars were combined/uncoupled from the City of New Orleans (Chicago-New Orleans). Creation of this direct route built on excitement over the Louisiana World Exposition held in New Orleans in summer 1984. From the Ann Owens Collection.
