Modern Photo - Tower 165

The concrete culvert in the foreground was built in the 1920s for the Texas Electric (TE) interurban
where it crossed a creek at the site of Tower 165 in Corsicana. Tower 165 was where the TE crossed
the Burlington-Rock Island (B-RI) rail line at grade, a few hundred yards west of a grade-separated
crossing of the B-RI and the Southern Pacific. The diamond for Tower 165 was located just east of
where Commerce St. now crosses the BNSF line in north Corsicana. Photo by Jim King
