Outdoor Railroad Exhibit
Built new for Texas Southeastern Railroad of Diboll, Texas (TSE) in 1920 by Baldwin Locomotive Works, Engine 13 is a 68-ton 4-6-0 or Ten-Wheeler steam locomotive. It was used regularly by TSE and Southern Pine Lumber Company (SPLCo) of Diboll as a mainline logging engine until replaced by TSE diesel-electric locomotive 22 in 1956. It then served extra duty periodically until 1964, when it was retired and placed on display. Temple-Inland donated the Engine to The History Center in 2002.
