Flooded Train

Welcome to Train Week here at OPOD. We will be looking back at a day when people primarily traveled by train. We start with this picture of a train crossing a flooded area. I am not sure if the train ended up stranded, or if they just stopped for a picture. I am not sure a few feet of water would stop a train. The picture was taken in 1904. The train was part of the Missouri-Kansas-Texas and the picture was taken on the Katy.
