Galveston, Houston & Henderson

Galveston has had at least three roundhouses/turntables thoughout its railroad history. Two of the roundhouses (ATSF and GH&H) can easily be found in the Google images. After consulting with the Galveston Railroad Museum an additional roundhouse location was identified (Galveston Terminal Railway). This Museum has an excellen archive and well worth visiting. I have also included a photo of a track diagram taken in the Galveston Railroad Museum. Select any of the above for additional images/photos and information. ~Fred Swain
