Missouri Kansas Texas engines near Dallas Union Station

MKT engines 323 (exConrail), 170, 230, and 225 head north from the Joint Yard in the Right of Way District back to the MKT yard after setting out the rest of train 101 on March 7, 1987. The train 101 was scheduled into Dallas at 5:00AM. You can see Union Station beyond the engines in the background to the right.

Depository near Dallas Union Station

Just behind engine 225 is the former Texas School Book Depository. It was built in 1901 and was just another building in downtown Dallas until Lee Harvey Oswald shot President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. The top floor became the Sixth Floor Museum in 1989.

Beyond that building and slightly to the right is the tallest building in Dallas. The Bank of America building has 72 stories and was completed in 1985. This building contributes to the uniqueness of the Dallas skyline at night by being trimmed in green neon lights.  Disk 95
