T&P M-1 #904

Marshall, TX


Photograph of a train engine and attached cars on railroad tracks, viewed from a front side angle. "904" and "Texas & Pacific" are visible on the side. Additional tracks sit behind it. The tracks carve through a small valley, cliffs rising up on either side. Electrical poles line the cliff side on the right, with trees on either side. Handwritten text below the image says, "West of Marshall, Texas 1944 T&P #7 'The Southerner.'"
