Texas State Railroad State Historical Park

. Description:  Originally built by prison labor to transport iron ore and wood to a prison operated iron smelter, the line was later extended with prison labor and all crews except the engineer were prisoners.  The line was leased to private railroads from 1921 to 1969 and reopened with two depots, four steam locomotives and four antique diesel locomotives in 1976.
