Album Info:On March 24th, I went to see the Museum of the American Railroad in Frisco, Texas. Until recently, it was located in Dallas, and the new facilities have not been completely finished, limiting access to the site. However, they run weekend tours, and I was in Frisco on a Saturday, so I got to go visit. I was glad I did! You know those huge Union Pacific engines in Omaha? Frisco's got them too! Their extensive collection included a Frisco Meteor steam engine, a Canadian National locomotive in disguise, and even a Pennsylvania Railroad locomotive that has headed west! It's a huge collection, but a must-see if you are ever in Frisco. Enjoy the photos!

Not ATSF 49
Title:  Not ATSF 49
Description:  Don't let the paint fool you! This locomotive actually spent its life with the Canadian National, before getting repainted to a more Texan paint scheme. The Santa Fe had plenty of tracks in Texas, while the CN...well, you can guess why that might not have run there.

The Frisco Frisco Depot!
Title:  The Frisco Frisco Depot!
Description:  Frisco was a short name for the St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad. The railroad never made it west of Texas! So it never reached one of the towns it was named after, but it reached the town named after it, at least.

Santa Fe Caboose
Title:  Santa Fe Caboose
Description:  All cabooses tend to look a little different because...well, because they are a little different. Each railroad had their own preferred design. On the Santa Fe, the cupola tended to be over towards one end of the caboose, as it is on this one.

Description:  Santa Fe, right? Actually, this engine never ran on the Santa Fe! In fact, it spent most of its life north of the border, on the Canadian National! However, now that it resides in Dallas, the museum proprietors decided to give it a paint scheme that looked a little more familiar in Texas.
