A VETERAN RAILWAY ENGINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 13 November 1907

A VETERAN RAH- WAY ENGINE. The American habit of 'scrapping' old machines has its exceptions, writes the 'Westminster Gazette.' There was in regular use until a few weeks ago a railway engine ,tbe 'Texas,' which dis tinguished herself on 12th April, 1862, by enabling the Confederates to pursue suc cessfully a number of Northern raiders. If contemporary accounts are to oe oe lieved, her speed on that occasion would be creditable even nowadays, for In 65 minutes the pursuers covered 60% miles, made twelve stoppages, and switched off two cars which had lpeen dropped by the fugitives. The 'Texas' has lately been used in the service of the Western and Atlantic Railroad. She has been pur chased by public subscription, and is to be placed on, a pedests^ at the entrance to Grant Park in Atlanta.
