Above: Train 41, the Houston section of the Texas Eagle backs into Houston Union Station. This picture was taken when this train had only weeks to go before its final arrival and departure. Above right: Minute Maid Park. The red brick building in the upper left was Union Staion. Now office space for the Houston Astros.
Above: This faded color slide shows the Eagle on a track where today beer and hotdogs are sold. In the photo above right, the top row of seats of the bottom section of grandstand is about where the track was located.
Above right: A Railroad presence still occupies some of the old Union Station property. A Locomotive and tender runs atop the outfield wall.
At left: The brakeman has signaled to the engineer to stop. And this is the time to end this story.
