T&P P-1 #603

Marshall, TX


Photograph of train engine #603 and attached cars on railroad tracks, viewed from a front side angle. "603" and "Texas & Pacific" are visible on the side. Additional tracks lay on either side, another train in the back of the ones behind. Buildings sit on the right side of the tracks up a small hill, a water tower in the background. Handwritten text below the image says, "Entering Marshall, Texas Yards 1944 T&P #7 'The Sunshine Special' powered by a 2-10-4, 600 series instead of the usual 4-8-2, 900's do [sic] to wartime irregularities."
