A car of the train is named for each of the three main characters of the book "The Adventure of Tom Sawyer." The contestants, order unknown, are Junior Musson (Ft. Madison, IA), Bob Samuelson (Ft. Madison, IA), Wayne Priebe (Canton, MO), Thomas Moore (Canton, MO), Lewis Hewitt (Clarksville, MO), Russell Mathes (Elsberry , MO), Danny Kane (Keokuk, IA), George Rogers (Keokuk, IA), Charles Flick (Hannibal, MO), Jack Meyer (Hannibal, MO), and Edgar Denniston (Burlington, IA).
