Artist's Description

Engine No. 794 1916
This original Southern Pacific 135-ton locomotive, one of only four “Mikado” engines left in the United States, was retired and given to the city in 1957. Engine No. 794 served from 1916-1956 as a freight train, running trips from San Antonio to Del Rio, Corpus Christi, Houston and Kerrville. With the renovation of the Southern Pacific Depot, No. 794 returned home in January 1999, a move reflecting the historical significance of the city’s railroading past. The move to the Depot took three days, as the locomotive and tender were the second heaviest objects ever relocated by truck in San Antonio.
