Display steamer from the City Park in Marshall has been hidden way in a shed for the past several years, while asbestos abatement was in process. That has been completed and the engine has reappeared. To be moved to a new display site at the Marshall Depot (which is a pretty interesting one, restored n the past few years and a museum as well as an AMTRAK station). Apparently additinal work to be done, but back where it can be seen.

There is one on the site of the Marshall newspaper (Marshall News Messenger). The engine is No. 400, a Baldwin 2-8-2 for FW&D in 1915 (that info from the MoPac Preservation site, which needs some up-dating) purchased by T&P at some later date. News story claims it as the last steamer purchased by T&P.  
 
I will try and go up to Marshall before too long and if I get there, I'll try and get some piccies. It is around 80-90 miles, and with gas at $3/gallon again, I'm watching my travel.
