SoPac Locomotive #1673 on 12-17-13 in its cover at the SoPac depot. Built in 1900 and categorized as a mogul of the M-4 class 2-6-0 locomotive, it was originally a coal-burner. Retired in 1955 and donated to the City of Tucson, it was moved to the property of the Arizona Historical Society in Tucson. The locomotive was in excellent running condition when donated to the City. Due to construction at the Historical Society, it was moved to a display location at Himmel Park in Tucson in 1962. In 2000, it came to it's current location at the former SoPac Depot, which currently serves Amtrack. Excellent early photos and info are at the Museum's web site: http://www.tucsonhistoricdepot.org/1673/about1673.htm

The entry door on the northwest end is the only opening (no windows). Built in 1907, purchased by the city from SPrr in 1998 and restored by 2004 to their 1941 modernized Spanish Colonial Revival architectural style - elements include the stuccoed brick walls and Mission-style Spanish red clay roof tiles and broad-eaved gable roof lines. Note a satellite dish below the eaves.

The museum is housed in the former "Storage Vaults" building that is one of three small buildings adjacent to the former Southern Pacific Railroad's Tucson depot. It seems strange they don't set up in the depot which seems to have vacant space?? Photo on 12-17-13 of the southwest end, which faces toward the depot.
