CRI&P railroad depot at Bridgeport, TX

You are in the CarrTracks website Picture Gallery.

The original town of Bridgeport was located next to the Trinity River. When the railroad came through the area, the town was moved closer to the tracks. Coal was discovered here around 1860 north of town. All of the mines were shut down by 1942. A branch line was built west of Bridgeport to Graham around 1902. In 1955 the Rock Island acquired track from the old Wichita Falls and Southern Railroad between Graham and Breckenridge. Most of this branch line trackage was abandoned by 1970.
