TXGN The Southwest Railfan TXGN 92

Texas, Gonzales, & Northern

Texas Gonzales & Northern operates a 12-mile branch east of San Antonio in south Texas. The line runs from a connection with UP's Flatonia Sub at Harwood, south to the small town of Gonzales. The railroad owns two locomotives: SW1200 # 92 and SW10 # 97. The 97 recently spent several years on the Texas Rock Crusher in Brownwood, Texas, and was not present on TXGN property when I took these photos in 1999.
