The article says "610 pulled the freedom train through Texas from Austin to Houston and Ft. Worth. After months of work by Dick Jensen and his crew from the 610 Historical Foundation at the stockyards in Ft. Worth, the engine made its first test runs in the yard trackage near the working site on January 29, 1976. It looked like an engine just going out to work (above) as it chuffed through the yard. On February 4 it made a test run to Wichita Falls over FW&D rails (right) with an SD7, four boxcars and a caboose. After de-bugging at Wichita Falls, it returned on a train that approximated the weight of the Freedom Train ahead of two MOP Bicentennial diesels to run from Austin to Houston. It is shown (left) between Navasota and Plantersville on February 18, 1976." Written below the clipping is "Railfan Magazine Summer 1976 Vol 1 #7."
