Comments/Directions:
Beautiful depot in Spanish Mission Revival style that had been used by Santa Fe RR and Fred Harvey House Hotels and that featured stucco exterior, roofs of red tile and round arches. Built in 1910 costing $120,000 after Santa Fe RR entered town in 1908, with Harvey House dining room until 1940. Current owners- a private auction company - should donate to locals who are proposing a Santa Fe RR museum. A wonderful location rather than 2nd floor of downtown office building! Lots of intersecting lines and train spotting nearby.

KANSAS CITY, MEXICO & ORIENT DEPOT (PRIVATE)
500 S 3RD ST
CHILLICOTHE, TEXAS 79225 -USA
Location: SOUTH OF U.S. 287 AND ALONG THE SOUTH SIDE OF 3RD STREET, 300 FEET WEST OF AVE. F
Description:
  • RAILROAD DEPOT
Comments/Directions:
Chillicothe's depot - now a derelict sitting along the abandoned right-of-way - once had been one of the little yellow wooden depots of Santa Fe's small-town freight agencies. When built in 1909 as a standard 84-foot long "Orient" depot, in 1959, it was then crudely cut to a 24x34 foot building with a lopsided roof line. It's original hip roof is on one end and it's a gable on the cut-off end. It appears it's demise likely will end soon with a fire or bulldozer. Apparently some had sought to preserve it but the owner refuses to sell. This segment of the Orient railroad started at Altus, OK heading south hopefully to reach a Mexican port on the Pacific Ocean, which would have been the closest coast to Kansas City. The line only made it as far south as Sonora, Texas, however. Purchased by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway in the 1920s, this section of line between Chillicothe and Sweetwater was evidently abandoned in the 1990s. Incorporated in 1908, Chillicothe was a cattle ranching community by 1887 when the Fort Worth and Denver City RR built east to west through the county. That main between Dallas and Amarillo line survives as BNSF.

  • RAILROAD DEPOT
  • RAILROAD MEMORABILIA ON DISPLAY
Web Site SAINT'S ROOST MUSEUM HOMEPAGE
Comments/Directions:
This stylized depot - built from a reconfigured portion of the original Ft. Worth and Denver City Railroad depot - was moved in 1996 to its current site at the south edge of town on the grounds of the Saint's Roost Museum, which occupies the former Adair Hospital. In 1887, the FW&DC railroad reached town. Also that year, the famed JA Ranch was started by famous cowboy Charles Goodnight (Lonesome Dove) who partnered with John Adair, whose wife established Adair Hospital for their ranch hands. It operated from 1910 until 1971 and has since housed the Saint's Roost Museum for more than 30 years. The unusual moniker for the town was the nickname used by rambunctious cowboys and railroad workers of the time. The original town was referred to as a "sobriety settlement" whereby alcohol and rowdiness were unwelcome in the religious colony begun earlier along the river bank in 1878. Folks moved and a "New Clarendon" popped up along the new rail line 6 miles away, when construction skirted the river breaks of the Salt Fork. Clarendon served as a Division Point and had a roundhouse at the west edge of town along the tracks

Email Address
Comments/Directions:
The Katy Depot was built circa 1909 to 1911 and had been the passenger station and general office building of the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad. In addition to the Red River Railroad Museum it houses several businesses. Passenger service ended in the 1960's, but the depot along with M-K-T's former car shops remained the center of operations for the railroad until it's merger with the Union Pacific in August, 1988. Included as part of the National Register's Denison Commercial District (est. 1983), the Beaux Arts depot is perhaps the most architecturally significant building in Denison. A rather large depot for its time (250' by 100') and its location at the foot of Main Street and the downtown business district hints at its former importance. At its peak the station hosted 52 arriving and departing passenger trains daily. Also called Union Depot, it was the transportation center of the city and was used by other railroads, including the Frisco rr and the Houston and Texas Central rr. Because Katy's rail head was established here in late winter of 1872, and through linking with the latter company, the entire U.S. was connected by rail for the first time. The museum is full of railroad memorabilia and nearby is a nicely displayed consist formed with MKT model F3 locomotive leading two cabooses and miscellaneous rail cars.

Comments/Directions:
The GC&SFe built this passenger station in 1900. (Having begun in Galveston, TX in 1873, the AT&SFe Company built a new union depot in Galveston that would also house the offices of the Gulf, Colorado, and Santa Fe. - see Texas attraction "Galveston Railroad Museum.") In those years, it was already a subsidiary of the AT&SFe, having merged in 1886 by agreement with AT&Sf, which was their way to break into Texas railroad baron Jay Gould's stronghold. In 1965 the remaining GC&SF property was transferred to the Santa Fe and ultimately it was absorbed into the BNSF. In 1938 the depot was renovated and modernized by the Fort Worth Union Passenger Station and the Santa Fe Railroad. The station served several lines until 1960, when the Santa Fe became the sole railroad using the facility, after which the building was called the Santa Fe Depot. Amtrak operated between 1973 and 1995. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970. The sharply contrasting red and white brick and stone gives a stunning effect, especially the band of red/white brick in a zig-zag pattern of the neoclassical Beaux Arts Architectural Style that separates the 2 floors. Also, alternating bands of red brick separated by single courses of white brick surround the 1st floor. The second level is accented with white cast stone window and doorway arches and cornice, while the corners are alternate horizontal white stone/red brick in a unique quoining technique. The original stained glass windows, barrel-vaulted ceilings, and marble floors emanate style and grace. Purchased in 1999, it is a private entertaining/wedding venue.

Description:
  • RAILROAD DEPOT
  • HISTORICAL LANDMARK
  • RAIL PASSENGER SERVICE
Comments/Directions:
The Texas & Pacific Railway passenger terminal building opened in 1931, replacing an earlier station that burned in 1904. The terminal facilities included the larger Texas & Pacific Warehouse, which also was completed in 1931 one block to the west. Located between the two, sits the beautiful neo-classical architecture of the U.S. Post Office building. The 12-story railway station and office building included a lavish, opulent lobby with marble floors, metal-inlaid panel ceilings, and nickel and brass fixtures with brass, glass, plaster, and marble embellishments. The eight-story warehouse is a muted version, featuring inlaid panels of blue tile, ornamental brickwork, and polychrome brick. Both buildings having incorporated the zigzags and chevrons distinctive of the Zigzag Moderne style elements present in the early Art Deco period. With passenger travel declining in the 1930's, the railroad vacated the terminal in 1967 when passenger service in Fort Worth ended. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, preservationists saved the old T & P Terminal in the 1980s. The passenger area of the station had remained virtually untouched and it was restored to its former beauty in 1999. With extension of the Trinity Railway Express commuter service from Dallas into Fort Worth, passenger service resumed at the T & P station on December 3, 2001. Condominiums became available in the Depot building in 2006 and the warehouse remains vacant. The Texas and Pacific enjoys the distinction of being the only railroad chartered by an act of Congress. Shortly after receiving its charter in 1871 to build a southern transcontinental route to San Diego. The first lines opened west from Texarkana to Dallas in 1873. However, T & P never reached San Diego, having only reached to Sierra Blanca east of E1 Paso where it met with the Southern Pacific in 1881. The Missouri Pacific Railroad gained majority ownership 1928 but allowed it to continue operation until they merged in 1976.

The first railroad tunnel in Texas was the Fredericksburg and Northern. After the railroad was abandoned it was turned into a bat habitat. It is over 900 feet long and is now a state park. I stopped by in the off season and the sign said $5 per person (wow). The tunnel is closed in the off season so check with state website for info. Half a mile east of the Fredericksburg city limits along U.S. 290, look for the brown TxDOT highway sign that says "Old Tunnel Wildlife Area." Go south 10.5 miles on the "Old San Antonio Road." The WMA is on the left. The phone number gives info on the bat cave.

At the west end of the Strand Historic District, the Galveston Railroad Museum's more than 35 pieces of locomotives and rolling stock is one of the largest restored railroad collections in the southwest, and one of the five largest in the country, with numerous railroad memorabilia and exhibits, including the Renfert collection of railroad dining china, O-gauge train displays, or a short train ride near Galveston Harbor on MPac Caboose #13895. Southeast Texas' most popular railroad museum, has lots to see and do for everyone! Damaged by Hurricane Ike, the grand re-opening in November, 2012, with 2 newly repainted F7A locos (they look great) makes this noteworthy attraction available again.

Comments/Directions:
Take a step back in time as the Historic Jefferson Railway takes you on an excursion that circles the Piney Woods along the scenic Big Cypress Bayou. This train is pet-friendly for well-behaved, friendly pets. The Historic Jefferson Railway is open each Saturday with narrated day trains and their infamous evening Ghost Train and offers free ghost stories at the depot before the Ghost Train. On the narrated day trains, you’ll view a Confederate Powder Magazine from the Civil War era and traverse the site of one of the oldest towns in Texas. As you roll through the Piney Woods, hear the history of Jefferson and the story of the remains of many sites from the 1880’s still visible along the track. Or climb aboard the legendary Ghost Train. The Ghost Train carries you deep into the dark woods along the Bayou. The storyteller shares legends of Jefferson and East Texas ghosts. Historic Jefferson Railway was nominated as one of the Best Excursion Railroad Theme Trains for its Ghost Train by the readers of Cowcatcher magazine for 2009 and 2012. The antique train is a restored gas-powered Plymouth Locomotive built in 1964. The beautiful enclosed coach offers a warmer experience while the open-canopied observation cars provide an excellent view of the ride along the river. Union Pacific recently recognized Jefferson in their “Train Town USA” registry, so make it a full train weekend in Jefferson by including a visit to the R.D. Moses T & P Model Railroad Museum and touring Jay Gould’s “Atalanta” private railroad car. Bring the RV or tent camp at the Diamond Don & Cypress Bayou RV Park, just one mile from downtown Jefferson. Sites available along the Big Cypress Bayou. Bigfoot (also known in these parts as the Boggy Creek monster) has been sighted running along the railroad tracks as the sun begins to set. Is the tale of the Bigfoot sightings fact or fiction? The Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy website says “Jerry Hestand, Mark Porter and Charles DeVore investigated a number of cases in Marion County from reliable trustworthy people in or near these remote bottomlands. It is their assessment that it seems highly likely that events have been reported accurately”. The train rolls right by the home of the Boggy Creek monster as depicted in the horror movie, “Boggy Creek”, filmed in Jefferson and Uncertain. The movie is loosely based on the old Big Foot or Sasquatch legends, says Brian T. Jaynes, director and producer. So, are the sightings real or a spoof to enhance your rider experience? You’ll have to ride the train to find out! The Railway is a part of the thriving community of Jefferson sponsoring major events throughout the year. Visitors look forward all year to Route 49 Biker Rally, Diamond Don’s Riverport National Vintage Motocross in April, The Great Locomotive Chase, Naval Battle & Civil War Living History and Jefferson Train Days in May, Jefferson Salutes the Cowboy in July, Runaway Fright Train in October and the Rail of Lights Christmas and New Year’s train in November and December. . Jefferson is nestled deep in the Piney Woods of East Texas and seems frozen in time. It is a charming town and an elegant reminder of a bygone era. There are over a hundred buildings in the city with historical markers. Many historic homes offer bed and breakfast accommodations. Dozens of other historic buildings house museums, craft and antique shops and restaurants. Historic Jefferson Railway is located at 400 E. Austin in Downtown Jefferson, Texas.

Web Site THE SAN ANTONIO AND ARANSAS PASS RAILWAY
Comments/Directions:
The Kerrville SAAP depot is a colorful brick building painted cream with three red-trimmed arched entryways and a (weathered) red cement-asbestos tile roof. It was built in 1913 or 1915, replacing an earlier wood structure, which burned. It now houses one of a series of restaurants - the current one opened in 2004. Kerrville's terminus of this branch line coursing 71 miles northwest from San Antonio had a small yard and turntable. Originally it had been intended to reach San Angelo but there were no paying customers up that way. The SAAP was an interesting line - started on a shoe string and somewhat overextended - branching north to Waco, East to Houston, South to Corpus Christi (and beyond to Falfurrias, TX). It was an eclectic collection of depots, some dozen still standing. Due to lawsuits relating to an accident, it went into receivership in 1890, at which time, SP bought out the major stockholder and it became "managed" by SP. It was later absorbed into the SP in 1925 operating as part of their New Orleans Railway subsidiary in 1934

Description:

Comments/Directions:
Paris's (circa) 1900 "Other Depot," served Texas and Pacific Railroad's east-west mainline through town after 1885, when they finished the Texarkana to Dallas line. A solidly-built, rectangular red-brick structure with hipped gablet (Dutch-hip) roof with wide eaves supported by brackets (Prairie House/Italianate style). Baggage area in east portion door at platform height. The Missouri Pacific Railroad gained majority ownership of the Texas and Pacific Railway's stock in 1928 they were eventually merged on October 15, 1976. Currently, minimal, if any, local rail traffic as rails are torn up east of the depot. The Trail de Paris uses much of the city's railroad right-of-way and is a segment of the Northeast Texas Trail. This depot certainly should be on the National Register (current restaurant occupant).

Comments/Directions:
In Quanah, TX (at the east edge of town adjacent to U.S. 287) is a depot comprised of depots from two other towns and two different railroads: Chillicothe and Medicine Mound. The FW&D depot from Chillicothe, which is about 9 miles to the east, was moved here - I believe in the 1980's. It is the left part (east end), including the higher central portion. Attached on the west end (right end) and operated as a restarunt (now vacant), is the Medicine Mound depot (KCM&O). Chillicothe was served by both FW&D and the Kansas City, Mexico and Orient RR. The KCM&O also ran south through Medicine Mound, which is a ghost town about 9 miles southeast of Quanah and directly south of Chillicothe.

The Quanah, Acme and Pacific RR depot operated from 1910 to 1981. A Spanish mission architectural-style building with white stucco walls, arches and red tile roof, it sports two bell towers that loom above the front entrance plus eight smaller towers on all corners - a massive two-story building for a 117 mile short-line rr. It has been a county museum since 1986. It's a national historic landmark, along with the nearby 1891 county jail. The QA&P headed southwest from Quanah, through unknown Texas towns that popped up as it was completed - with interesting names like Acme, Paducah, Matador, Roaring Springs (extant depot there, also) and Floydada, where it ended. The QA&P opened up a small part of the vast middle ground of north Texas in the 1890's between Wichita Falls and Amarillo, to which it connected through the FW&D. The "Frisco" (SLSF) connected it northerly into Oklahoma.

The Galveston Harrisburg & San Antonio Railway built the depot in 1912/13 to accommodate passenger service on the Victoria/Rosenberg Division and Wharton/Palacios branch line. The depot sits on the "Macaroni line", named to honor the 1,200 Italians who helped build the track for the New York, Texas & Mexican RR in 1882. The depot will service as a local transit center and the Wharton Railroad Museum . The Kanas City Southern -TexMex Railway is donating the depot and is currently rebuilding the Macaroni line. Full operation of line is scheduled for 2008/09.
