Southern Pacific Locomotive No. 3420

The Southern Pacific Locomotive No. 3420 is on display in front of the Union Station in 1960. Since the railroad had been built in El Paso in 1881, the Southern Pacific was one of the companies which moved in and out of the city. Together with five other American railroad companies and the National Railway of Mexico it built the Union Depot in 1906, thus making El Paso the first international station in the United States, with service to and from Mexico.
