Steam switcher in Dallas yard
Posted: Thu Oct 22, 2009 10:41 am
I boarded a T&P passenger, Dallas to El Paso in the summer of 1964. Cars were being switched in the yard, putting the train together. I walked to the end of the car, and, staring at me across the vestibule was the headlight and front end of a steam switcher. In 1964! Can anybody shed any light on this ghost? The last T&P revenue steam run was in 1953, so all the steamers should have been retired.
