A locomotive as big as Texas. Squirreled away in a shed on the grounds of the Texas State Railroad, sits a locomotive worthy of the Whyte Classification "Texas." This monstrous 2-10-4, oil-burner is the largest surviving, non-articulated Lima Locomotive Product. Built in 1927 for the Texas & Pacific Railway, this engine boasts 92,590 lbs of tractive effort, but is equipped with a booster engine, which raises her total pulling power to 105,890 lbs. She weighs 452,000 lbs and sits on 62" drivers. She spent a 24 year career on the Texas & Pacific, before being retired as a static display in 1951. She was revived in 1976 and restored to operation for use on the American Freedom Train along portions of its route. Later, she served in excursion service with Southern Railway as "Southern 610" until she was retired once again in 1981. Although she hasn't turned a wheel in nearly 40 years, she's been kept in pretty nice shape, largely thanks to being stored indoors, here at the Texas State Railroad. While there are no plans to operate her again, she is periodically brought outside as a very impressive static display. In this case, she was rolled out for photographers at a 2019 Lerro Productions photo event.
