Texas Railroad History - Tower 214 - Houston (Galena Junction)

Tower 214 is also known as Galena Junction, and is located in east Houston just north of the turning basin for the Houston Ship Channel. It was established in 1966 at a major junction of Southern Pacific (T&NO) tracks and the southern end of the Port Terminal Railroad Association's North Yard.  There was probably never a manned, manual interlocker at this location.
