A late Amtrak Tr 2, The Sunset Limited, races through Marion TX led by P42 # 160. This livery is universally known as the “Pepsi Can” by railfans.

Marion TX was incorporated in 1941, but goes back to 1877 when the Galveston, Harrisburg and San Antonio Rwy passed through a plantation here. The owner named the town after his grandchild, Marion Dove.
