[Westbound double-headed passenger train in Dallas]

Description: Observe this unusual scene: One of the Texas and Pacific Railway's westbound passenger trains entering Dallas Union Terminal Station - double-headed by steam locomotives with Engine No. 715, a Pacific type 4-6-2, on the point. the time was 5:00 PM in the year 1949. This unusual photograph appears to depict a three-locomotive movement from the Cadiz St roundhouse to the station tracks at Union Terminal Co. The first engine is a T&P 4-6-2 No.715, the second most likely also a T&P locomotive, and the third is one of the Southern Pacific's streamlined 4-6-2 P-14s in Sunbeam service. The notes accompanying the photograph list the time as 5:00PM which is the exact time The Sunbeam is supposed to depart for Houston. It will certainly have to do some high stepping to beat the Sam Houston Zephyr into Houston this 1949 day.
