Things To Do
Located inside the Visitor Information Center the Old Locomotive Number One is a legendary and thoroughly restored steam locomotive dating back to the early era of American railroads before the Civil War. Of less than thirty surviving engines from this period, it is the most original and complete. Old Number One has been cherished as an historic relic since its retirement in 1909 and has been on display at several sites around El Paso for more than ninety years. It has recently undergone a thorough cosmetic restoration and has been moved to a new home in downtown El Paso. Exhibits depicting its history and restoration are available in the center as well.
