Remembering Texas & Pacific Railway freight trains

The Texas & Pacific Railway is Classic Trains' Railroad of the Month for June 2020.
Ten-Wheeler 352 leads Texas & Pacific’s Texarkana Local, a mixed train known as “The Bullet” because of its slow schedule, into Shreveport, Louisiana, in about 1942. The oil-fired 4-6-0 trails a tank car of extra water.  Photo by Ed Robinson
