The area's largest lake is located 50 miles northeast of Amarillo.The water levels at Lake Meredith, according to the National Weather Service in Amarillo, hit record low depth readings. As the depth of the water continues to decline so does the level of activity on the lake, hurting the economy of the lake's community.

"Madame Queen" Photo

"Madame Queen"

The only (prototype) 2-10-2 "Texas Type" locomotive 5000, built especially for the Plains Division of the Santa Fe Railroad in 1930. The locomotive's name was derived from an imaginary character on the Amos & Andy show.
Now located at 2nd & Lincoln Sts. in downtown Amarillo, this locomotive was especially built for the Plains Division of the Santa Fe Railroad in 1930 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in Philadelphia, PA. Designed to haul heavy freight at a fast pace, she retired from service in November 1953 after running over 1.75 million miles.

Santa Fe donated the Queen to the City of Amarillo in 1957 and placed her in front of the Santa Fe Depot, where she remained for over 48 years. She was relocated to her current location in 2005 and the move was featured in the Mega Movers series of The History Channel.
