  1. The Houston street car book has route maps, but I wasn't able to find a copy at Brazos. I haven't tried the library yet. I can buy a copy directly from the author but it's a bit pricey. Does anyone have a map of the original routes? Galveston-Houston Electric Railway Co. Electric Interurban Railway Streetcar Map from the Stone & Webster Management Association, 1922, and 1923.
  2. Have any of you heard about the locomotive being moved to Minute Maid Park? If so, where did they put it?
  3. If you look at maps of Houston dating from the 1910s and 1920s, you'll notice a rail spur from the old SA&AP (later Southern Pacific) mainline down to the Rice campus. [The San Antonio & Aransas Pass Railway paralleled today's Southwest Freeway.] One purpose of the rail spur was to service a coal power plant on the campus. Anyone seen old photographs of the rail line or the Rice power plant? It would appear the spur left the mainline and traversed what later became Greenbriar Dr.
  4. In the Dallas Public Library's digital photograph collection---of all places!--- are 25 photographs of the construction of the Southern Pacific passenger depot in 1934. The images include exterior and interior views of the structure including the historical murals. In some views you can see the older Grand Central Depot dating from the 1800's. http://dallaslibrary.org/CTX/photogallery/searchguide.html Search the digital collection using the keywords "Southern Pacific Passenger Railroad Station." I believe the general contractor was a Dallas firm, thus a possible reason for the photos ending up there. P.S. The site of Grand Central is now occupied by the downtown post office.
