  The Chatter Box : Travel
Southern Arizona Transportation Museum. by tucsonmike on 11 August 2005 8:05am

We are replacing the front page soon, to have colors that look like the depot itself. So far, we just have smaller exhibits, though we just got a donation of track laying equipment (that yours truly gets to catalog) We are working on bringing a boxcar to the depot. We have a locomotive built in 1900 that was a working Southern Pacific locomotive for 55 years and put on one million miles. If you ever see the movie Oklahoma it is in the song Everything is Up to Date in Kansas City.
