Texas - The History Center at Diboll, TX

Diboll, Texas - The History Center Outdoor Railroad Exhibit. Railroads profoundly shaped our geographic and cultural landscape, creating and connecting communities like nothing before or since. Our fully accessible railroad display invites you to climb aboard, ring the locomotive's bell and blow the whistle, explore the caboose, and experience the sights and sounds of railroading's exciting past.

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.
