"This is a photo of Texas & Pacific locomotive #638. I was told that this engine was in a head-on collision near Toyah on New Year's Day 1947 and that several of the crew members shown in this photo were killed in the crash.

If any Texas Escapes readers have any information on this crash, please email me. jtsscott@msn.com

Thank you." - John Scott, Greenville, Texas, April 10, 2007
