View from one of four domes on the Branson Scenic Railway’s "Ozark Zephyr" on May 11, 2011. The "Ozark Zephyr" runs over tracks owned by the Missouri and North Arkansas Railroad, which was previously part of the Missouri Pacific Railroad main between Kansas City and Memphis. The power for this run was Branson Scenic’s F9PH No. 99, which previously MARC No. 83, which was originally B&O F7A No. 4566. No. 99 was extensively rebuilt and equipped with an HEP unit for MARC service by Morrison-Knudsen in 1980.
