Description HANNIBAL, MO - The Mark Twain Zephyr is honored for its tenth birthday. The celebration includes the placement of 10 year chevrons by Ralph Budd, President of the CB & Q Railroad. The ceremony takes place at Union Depot where the original dedication was also held. The Zephyr appears to be in good shape considering it has traveled 1,767,180 miles. President Harry S. Truman, who attended the original dedication ceremony as a U.S. Senator, is unable to attend but sends a congratulatory telegram.  Ben Cripe, on the right of the foursome, is standing to the left of the Zephyr engine.
