Roger Plummer again
Author: tomstp

Roger must have taken hundreds of pictures of the railroads serving Texarkana.  Here are two shots of T&P 4-8-2 #906 both in Texarkana and leaving it.  First photo is very interesting .  Can't tell if it was a foggy morning or just what would be causing all the moisture surrounding  the engine.(note the moisture on the tender)  But, I sure like the picture of it in the station.

TRain is probably longer than you think as in the photo it is coming around a curve and you can’t really tell if there is anything beyond the fourth car.

Nice clean engine.  Almost looks like its been washed.  Could also be humidity.  When we were in Houston with 1522, I raised the shade on the drawing room window and thought it was raining because of all the water running down it.   Was so humid it took your breath away.

That T&P 4-8-2 has an awesome appearance.  Everything about its appearance suggests power yet it has clean lines.
Thanks for posting these photos of my favorite steam locomotive class.

Thanks for sharing these great T&P photos by R.S. PLummer, who , in my opinion was the dean of Texas RR photographers. --Kelly
