Steam Excursion, June 29, 1956
- Members - On Feb 17, 2012, I posted "Station at Hempstead", asking about a photo I had recently found.
Hempstead residents recall it as a photo of the Hempstead Centennial celebration, and that the passenger cars standing on the mainline were used in an excursion to Houston, on 6/29/56. A reliable source recalls that the excursion returned to Hempstead pulled by a steam engine.
I've searched Waller County newspaper archives online, but not found coverage of this excursion during the Centennial celebration.
Can someone point me toward additional information? I'd appreciate that.
