Alpine Texas

Alpine TX is the hub for visitors to Big Bend National Park and a nice town on its own.  As with most cities in the West it started out as a railroad town.  We found an old South Orient RR depot as well as a modern Amtrak Depot, a very active Union Pacific freight line and plenty of homage to its rail history.
