Cotton Belt Engine 150 at Lufkin Depot, circa 1921
Cotton Belt (St. Louis Southwestern Railway) Engine 150 and a three-car train at the Lufkin depot, facing in the direction of Tyler in about 1921. The camera view is facing in the direction of the railroad's terminus at White City to the east. At times, three other railroad companies used this depot: the Groveton, Lufkin and Northern Railway (prior to 1932); the Eastern Texas Railroad (prior to 1922); and the Texas Southeastern Railroad (prior to 1943).
