Texas Export Railroad's Baldwin VO-1000 1004 was outshopped in 1945 as Cotton Belt (St. Louis Southwestern) 1009. After serving as Louisiana & North West 43 and then Georgetown Railroad 1004, it came to the TXRC in 1973. In August 1974 I encountered it in Bridgeport, Texas and took this transparency. One source believes the locomotive was restored to its original number 1009, but if so this had not occurred by the time I recorded it here. The Texas Export was abandoned in 1976, but the locomotive's fate is unknown to me.
