Bronze builder's plate from 1936 on street underpass


Argyle (Roanoke)
This section house, originally at Roanoke, has been moved a few miles north to Argyle.
Shane Murphy now owns this building, which houses his T&P/MKT model RR. Thanks, Shane, for sharing this photo.

Arlington


Freight Dock


Nearby underpass with walkways, built in 1929

The Arlington depot was razed many years ago, but original blueprints for the station have been discovered, and a replica may be built in a nearby city park.


Baird

UPDATE! Restoration of the Baird depot is now underway - click here for more information.

 


Baird Station - Now the Baird Chamber of Commerce


West View - Note original roof line and inlaid brick diamond logo

Near-fullsize mural of a T&P 2-10-4 in downtown Baird


Ballinger


A&S depot

Ballinger was the southern terminus of the T&P subsidary Abilene & Southern. A small remnant of that line still switches industries on Abilene's south side


Big Spring

Big Spring was a crew change location and the division point between the Baird and Toyah subdivisions.


The T&P Federal Credit Union is across the street from the rail yard.

Just south of the yard is "Railroad Plaza", with a UP caboose (left) and this repainted T&P boxcar (below).

The T&P depot at Big Spring has been torn down, but this nice portrait of it hangs in the V.A. hospital.


Brazos

This tiny community is in Palo Pinto County (MP 303.4). It's on FM 129, about a mile west of where the railroad crosses the Brazos River.

I love the varying shades of green covering the ridgeline.


This building is adjacent to RR property. I think it's an interesting structure - note the window bars, brick front and stone sides.


A few miles away, the former T&P main crosses U.S. Hwy. 281. The underpass is still labeled "T&P RWY."


Buffalo Gap
(Clyde depot)

The irony, of course, is that the T&P was SUPPOSED to go through Buffalo Gap in 1881, but Abilene's backers "stole" it away. Now at last, Buffalo Gap has a T&P station!


Clyde Depot, now in Buffalo Gap Historical Village

See more of this building on our museums page.

Colorado City


Historical Marker


Freight Dock

 

This beautiful rock fence surrounds an historic home in Colorado City.

When the Colorado City depot was torn down, a previous owner of the home bought the rock to build this fence.

Thanks to the current homeowner for his kind permission to take these pictures.
