Happy Flashback Friday St. Louis!

Were you able to come up with the right answer? Here’s it is.

The photo below shows a MetroLink train painted in the old paint sceme (we updated the train’s look around 2000) at the Civic Center MetroLink Station in 1995. A few fun facts to narrow down the time frame for you:

  • St. Louis-based Boatmen’s Bancshares Inc. was was acquired by NationsBank in 1996 and later ceased opeations that same year.
  • In 2001, Trans World Airlines filed for bankruptcy and was acquired by American Airlines and closed its St. Louis hub in 2003.
  • The Kiel Center, now Scottrade Center, opened in 1994.

Have a great weekend St. Louis!
