This train left St Louis just 15 minutes after Train No 21 along the same route to Texarkana. For a time this train shared the same name (The Texas Eagle). In 1961, the West Texas Eagle, and the South Texas Eagle ran as a combined train from St Louis to Texarkana, and were simple named the Texas Eagle. In 1952, dome cars were added to the two Texas Eagle routes. In 1964, the Eagle from St Louis to Texarkana was reduced to a single dome car, that car remaining with the San Antonio, South Texas Eagle. In 1967, the remaining dome car (and all others on the MoPac system) were sold off.
