HY&T Rolling Stock

Locomotives

In my research, I turned up a few photographs of the HY&Tís primary locomotive, the 1315.  The Tampico Historical Society shows earlier locomotives, the 048 and the 1172.  The photo album also shows an automobile that had been converted to rail operation for maintenance purposes.

1315:

Hooppole, Yorktown and Tampico Railroad locomotive Number 1315 was an 0-6-0 steam locomotive. Originally Kansas City, St. Joseph & Council Bluffs No. 42, built in the Company's shops, it was later renumbered to 510, then became Chicago, Burlington & Quincy (Class G-1) 1315 in 1904. The engine was sold to the HY&T in 1927.

Caboose:

Hooppole, Yorktown and Tampico Railroad caboose 14638 started life as a Burlington NE-1 caboose. Sold to the HY&T, it retained its CB&Q road number, with "HY&T" stenciled on the car sides under the Burlington reporting mark

In the background, the remains of the HY&T's passenger car, in serious disrepair. The Tampico Historical Society has identified this car as the former Southern Pacific No. 637.

The HY&T apparently did not have cars used in interchange service with other railroads, although cars from other roads were hauled on the HY&T.
