Will McFadden General I can not figure out where in Little Rock this picture was taken. Does anyone know? 11/16/2007 11:10:35 AM
Bill Pollard General This photo has been discussed in other venues and variously identified as Texarkana, Poplar Bluff or Little Rock. Thus far, the consensus has been that it is none of those places, but no one has been able to identify the actual location. 6/14/2015 8:30:36 PM
Bill Pollard General After discussion among various MP-TP fans, this photo was apparently taken in Marshall TX, looking north (east). The photographer was standing on a now vanished overpass (Willow Street ??) which was taken out in a derailment years ago. The overpass in the background is Virginia Street, which still exists, albeit in a modermized state. The train would be westbound, headed to Longview after the station stop, and would most likely be T&P #3, #7 or #237, all arriving between 125pm and 455pm. 6/16/2015 9:58:00 PM
