Trying to find some information on Texas Transportation Co. locomotive No. 1, and it's current whereabouts. Last photos I could find show the unit in storage date from 2006. From Wikipedia:

Quote:
No. 1 was a 60-ton short-nosed steeplecab engine built in 1917 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works and acquired secondhand by TXTC in 1954. It had previously been No. 504 of the Kansas City, Kaw Valley and Western Railway and, before that, Monongahela and West Penn Public Service Company No. 3002.


Locomotive No. 2 was built by St. Louis Car Co. and was completely restored and is now on display at the old brewery site.

Texas Transportation was the railroad that served the Pearl Brewery in San Antonio, Texas.

Thank you.

includes 2006 photo and note "status unknown." Maybe one of the RyPN Google maps detectives can find something from the photo?

I believe the photo was taken in the railroad yard at Austin & Duval, just southwest of the I-35/I-37 junction. But judging from aerial photos the locomotive is either inside one of the buildings or has been gone for years. I wish I knew which!
