The Galveston Island Railroad Museum

In September of 2000 the family and I took a visit down to Galveston, on the Texas Gulf Coast. Among the great things to view was the Galveston Island Railroad Museum. I’ve scanned some photos I’d taken on the visit of Southern Pacific NW-2E No. 1303.NW2_SP-1303-0

She was built in June 1949 by G.M.- EMD as # 1925 and when rebuilt in April 1971 became #1303.


She was donated to the Museum in December 1984 and was operable when I visited.

I hope that you enjoy the images. You can find out some more about the museum by visiting their website:
