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 with the first paint scheme (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:

  • 1995 was the first year that your Stanley Cup Champion St. Louis Blues played in their new building (after a lockout that delayed the start of the 1994-95 season.)
  • That year’s Blues team, captained by Brett Hull, made the playoffs and lost in the first round (4-3) versus the Vancouver Canucks. The New Jersey Devils swept the Red Wings to win the Cup in 1995.
  • St. Louis-based Boatmen’s Bancshares Inc. 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.

Enjoy your championship parade St. Louis — and ride Metro to the festivities.
