Where was this icing station? Other negs that day were taken in Texas so this is someplace in Texas.

I grew up in Corsicana , but to my knowledge I never remember seeing an icing station  unless it was located in Hill Yard on the Cotton Belt. I was just a boy in 1957.

Flatonia to Hearne was eastward, so...
has to be Hearne or north of it?

No 341 in 1952 -- just 343

Could it be Edinburg, Texas? They did have a ice dock.

Found it!!. Or more correctly narrowed it down!!

Once more, using Ed Gibson's wx4 website, a GREAT source of information for all things about operations
see: http://wx4.org/to/foam/sp/maps/perryETT/1956-05-20T%26NO_Dallas%26Austin54-SheldonPerry.pdf

Sheldon Perry's collection of SP's T&NO "Dallas and Austin Division" timetables 54 & 56  from 1956 and 1959
show No. 341, a second class schedule originating in Englewood (Houston) and terminating at Denison, Texas. 

Now we just have to find the location of this ice deck in John Endler's photo posted by RWJ.

Thank you Sheldon and Ed!

Charlie
