Oral Histories Project and Collection

Much of the Fall has been dedicated to writing and finalizing my Master's Thesis paper, so actual work on the archives had to be put on hold.  However, most of the writing is finished, and resuming archival accession and processing has begun.  Of particular excitement are the two, digitized oral histories now available on the Archives' YouTube Channel, Texas & Pacific Railway Company Digital Archives.  Both oral histories are told by children of former T&P employees who share their memories of the T&P's Steam Age.

Also available through research request, is the S.G. Productions' video Texas & Pacific 610 detailing the last five years of service of the Texas-type Steam Engine before being retired from service and used on the Texas State Railroad for tourism purposes between Rusk and Palestine, Texas.  The Archives does not own the copyright to this video but a copy was donated for research purposes; therefore, to view the video, a proper research request must be completed including copyright acknowledgment.  Please contact the archives at archivist@tnprailway.org for further information.

We are excited about the beginning of our Oral History Collection and would like to add your T&P stories to our archives!  We want you and your story, so please, contact us at archivist@tnprailway.org if you would like to share your history with the T&P.
