Re: Triple Underpass (Dallas)


Dennis, that's why the Rock Island was responsible for Tower 29 in Saginaw. The FW&D was first into town, the the Santa Fe and last the Rock Island. So the last road (in this case the RI) was responsible for manning and operating the interlock. I can't think of any examples where the last man to arrive wasn't the one footing the bills.

I got a copy from William Osborn years ago. 

Second railroad--- so then GC&SF would have been the second railroad in that vicinity!
Makes sense now.
