Hannibal's "go-to" guy whenever a wall needs a mural will be back in town soon.

On his Facebook page, Ray Harvey announced he will be starting on his 16th mural in Hannibal on October 2.

Harvey's latest masterpiece will be at 3rd and Broadway, and will depict the Mark Twain Zephyr, a passenger train that ran from St. Louis to Burlington via Hannibal from 1935 to 1958.

The train is being completely restored and will be making regular trips in Wisconsin next year.

Harvey is a resident of New Haven, Missouri, but has been in high demand in Hannibal for the last few years.

Even though it wasn't his first in Hannibal, the mural that put Ray Harvey on most Hannibalians' radar was the mural on the east side of Hannibal city hall in observance of the city's bicentennial.
