This is a repeat from my Dallas to Flatonia series, but it seems inappropriate to leave it out of this series.

Southern Pacific Railroad empty ballast train comes by Tower 3 at Flatonia, TX

Extra 3326 East swings off the Sunset Route at Flatonia and then heads north toward Giddings on on August 21, 1978. Tower 3 stands guard at the crossing. The tower was built in 1903 and retired in 1996. Fortunately the tower was saved and moved to a railroad park nearby. Disk 100
