Texas State Railroad 1985 Texas Parks and Wildlife Official

TV static lt;igt; NARRATOR: It was 30 years ago that thelt;igt; lt;igt; quot;Texas Parks Wildlifequot; television series,lt;igt; lt;igt; originally known as quot;Made in Texasquot; got its start.lt;igt; lt;igt; To celebrate this milestone,we're taking a look back at somelt;igt; lt;igt; of the interesting stories and unique characters thatlt;igt; lt;igt; we've discovered over the past three decades.lt;igt; lt;igt; For the very first story on the very first show,lt;igt;

lt;igt; we took a ride on The Texas State Railroad.lt;igt; bell ringing ♪ lt;igt; NARRATOR: The state prison system using convict laborlt;igt; lt;igt; began building the Texas StateRailroad back in the late 1800'slt;igt; lt;igt; to serve an iron furnace and other industrieslt;igt; lt;igt; near Rusk in East Texas.lt;igt;

lt;igt; After hard times brought the closing of the furnace,lt;igt; lt;igt; the line saw about 50 years of irregular servicelt;igt; lt;igt; and fell into disrepair.lt;igt; lt;igt; 1972, when the bulk of the Texas State Railroadlt;igt; lt;igt;was conveyed to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department,lt;igt; lt;igt; convict labor again played an important role in rebuildinglt;igt; lt;igt; the 25miles of track, creating an historic parklt;igt; lt;igt; dedicated to the preservation of steam locomotiveslt;igt;

lt;igt; and railroading's golden age.lt;igt; This is engine number 500on the state railroad. We acquired the engine fromthe city of San Angelo from a museum they had there,back in 1980. A little over a year inrebuilding, we started operating the locomotive in 1981, put itinto regular operation in early 82.

This locomotive hereweighs 138 tons. The tender back behind weighsan additional 100 tons when it's full offuel and water. So you are looking at apretty good size locomotive for this line. It was the first locomotive thatwe completely rebuilt ourselves. Other locomotives we hadcontracted out to outside firms. We are rather proud of this one.

We were able to do all thework ourselves on this one. lt;igt; NARRATOR: Engine 500 is just one of the completely restoredlt;igt; lt;igt; steam locomotives you'll find in operation at the park.lt;igt; lt;igt; Each scheduled run has a train leaving from each of thelt;igt; lt;igt; Victorian style depots at Palestine and Rusklt;igt; lt;igt; for a three hour round trip through the Piney Woodslt;igt; lt;igt; of east Texas.lt;igt; lt;igt;Passengers who arrive early can walk through the cab of thelt;igt;
