Galveston & Houston Junction

The road was needed to connect the Galveston, Houston & Henderson RR to the Houston & Texas Central RR and into the city of Houston. Its construction in 1862 used rails and cars purchased by the Houston, Trinity & Tyler RR. Two permanent bridges were not completed until October 1865 and the road may not have been in operation before that date.
