Tower 17 Rosenburg TX

Rosenberg TX

Tower 17 was "authorized" by the Texas Railroad Commission on July 23, 1903.
It was in service until February 10, 2004 and was dismantled and moved approximately
1/2 mile to the Rosenberg Railroad Museum, where it has been restored.

Rosenberg was one of the first to receive an interlocking tower. An interlocker is a
collection of locks, switches and levers that switch tracks from a central tower at
key sites to keep the trains moving smoothly.
