Texas and Pacific Station known as T&P Station, is a terminal Trinity Railway Express and TEXRail commuter railroad station is located at 1600 Throckmorton Street in Fort Worth, Texas, on the south side of downtown. It is the current western terminus of the TRE commuter line, serving the Fort Worth Convention Center, the Fort Worth Water Gardens, Sundance Square and Tarrant County government facilities. T&P Station features free parking; the current Texas & Pacific Station building was built by the Pacific Railway. It opened on October 1931, as a replacement for an earlier station, it was listed at the address, 221 W. Lancaster Avenue, it was designed in the Zigzag Moderne Art Deco style popular at the time. The opulent lobby features marble floors, metal-inlaid panel ceilings, nickel and brass fixtures, incorporating the zigzags and chevrons distinctive of the style; the terminal facilities included the larger Texas & Pacific Warehouse one block to the west, built in the same style as the station.
During the heyday of American passenger railroading, the station was served by trains of the CB&Q, Fort Worth and Denver Railway, Missouri Pacific and Frisco Lines. Other railroads, such as the Santa Fe and Rock Island Lines, stopped at the nearby Gulf and Santa Fe Railroad Passenger Station; the station declined along with the rest of the Lancaster Avenue area when the elevated portion of Interstate 30 was built in 1958 separating the area from downtown. The railroad vacated the terminal in 1967 when passenger service in Fort Worth ended, dispatching offices remained on the third floor until November 1, 1981, the Department of Housing and Urban Development became the exclusive tenant from the early 1980s until the late 1990s; the passenger area of the station, which had not been occupied by HUD and was untouched since 1967, was restored to its former beauty in 1999 at a cost of $1.4 million. Passenger service resumed at Texas & Pacific station on December 3, 2001 with the TRE's extension into Fort Worth.
The demolition of the elevated highway in 2002 opened the Lancaster Avenue area for redevelopment. The upper floors of the T&P station have been renovated and are available for purchase as condominiums; the building's facade underwent renovation and a new parking facility was built on the south side of the building. The historic diner on the ground floor was converted into a bar called the T&P Tavern; the T&P Warehouse building has not yet been renovated and is vacant. However, economic conditions and construction-related issues have delayed the project.

West Texas is a loosely defined part of the U. S. state of Texas encompassing the arid and semiarid lands west of a line drawn between the cities of Wichita Falls and Del Rio. There is no consensus on the boundary between West Texas. While most Texans understand these terms, no boundaries are recognized and any two individuals are to describe the boundaries of these regions differently. Walter Prescott Webb, the American historian and geographer, suggested that the 98th meridian separates East and West Texas. C. Greene proposed. West Texas is subdivided according to distinct physiographic features; the portion of West Texas that lies west of the Pecos River is referred to as "Far West Texas" or the "Trans-Pecos", a term first introduced in 1887 by Texas geologist Robert T. Hill; the Trans-Pecos lies within the most arid portion of the state. Another part of West Texas is the Llano Estacado, a vast region of high, level plains extending into Eastern New Mexico and the Texas Panhandle. To the east of the Llano Estacado lies the “redbed country” of the Rolling Plains and to the south of the Llano Estacado lies the Edwards Plateau.
The Rolling Plains and the Edwards Plateau subregions act as transitional zones between eastern and western Texas. The counties included in the West Texas region vary depending on the organization; the Texas Counties.net website acknowledges the variations, includes 70 counties in its definition, based on the five principal metropolitan areas it contains: El Paso, Abilene, Midland/Odessa, San Angelo. The counties included are Andrews, Borden, Brown, Castro, Coke, Comanche, Crane, Crosby, Dawson, Deaf Smith, Eastland, Ector, El Paso, Floyd, Garza, Hale, Hockley, Hudspeth, Jeff Davis, Kent, King, Lamb, Lubbock, Martin, Mason, McCulloch, Midland, Motley, Parmer, Pecos, Randall, Reeves, Schleicher, Shackelford, Sterling, Sutton, Terrell, Throckmorton, Tom Green, Val Verde, Ward and Yoakum; some of the smaller West Texas cities and towns include: Alpine, Anthony, Canutillo, Crane, Fort Davis, Fort Bliss, San Elizario, Fort Stockton, Hale Center, Kermit, Levelland, Marathon, Marfa, McCamey, Monahans, Pampa, Horizon City, Rankin, Slaton, Snyder and Van Horn.
West Texas receives much less rainfall than the rest of Texas and has an arid or semiarid climate, requiring most of its scant agriculture to be dependent on irrigation. This irrigation, water taken out farther north for the needs of El Paso and Juarez, has reduced the once mighty Rio Grande to a stream in some places dry at times. Much of West Texas has rugged terrain, including many small mountain ranges while there are none in other parts of the state. Except for the Trans-Pecos region, West Texas has become well known as a stronghold for conservative politics; some of the most Republican counties in the United States are located in the region. Former U. S. President George W. Bush spent most of his childhood in West Texas; the Panhandle and several counties in or west of Midland were one of the first areas of Texas to abandon the state’s “Solid South” Democratic roots. The Rolling Plains to the east remained Democratic for longer: Walter Mondale in 1984 when losing Texas by 27.50 percentage points carried five counties in this region.
However, since 2000 this region has swung rapidly towards the Republican Party due to its population’s intransigent opposition to the liberal social policies of the Democratic Party and by 2016 has become nearly so Republican as the Panhandle. Major industries include livestock and natural gas production, textiles such as cotton, and, because of large military installations such as Fort Bliss, the defense industry. West Texas has become notable for its numerous wind turbines producing clean, alternative electricity; as of 2018, the West Texan economy is in an economic period, described as the "West Texas oil boom". West Texas does not have major league sports teams. Instead the region has college teams such as Texas Tech Red Raiders and UTEP Miners, which play in NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II teams of the West Texas A&M Buffaloes, the Texas–Permian Basin Falcons, the Lubbock Christian Chaparrals and Lady Chaps. El Paso hosts the El Paso Chihuahuas, a AAA baseball team and Midland hosts the Midland RockHounds, a Double-A baseball team.
Oddly in the heat ravaged climate of West Texas, the winter sport of ice hockey can be found in the city of Odessa through a Tier II junior ice hockey team playing out of the North American Hockey League called the Odessa Jackalopes. In 2019, The San Antonio Missions will move to continue play at the Double-A level. "West of the Pecos" has become a metaphor for the universe of westerns. "Fastest draw west of the Pecos" and similar superlatives are a cliche, the title character of Chisum observed ”There’s no law west of Dodge, no God west of the Pecos”. See West of the Pecos.

Fort Worth Fire Department
The Fort Worth Fire Department provides fire protection and first responder emergency medical services to the city of Fort Worth, Texas. The Fort Worth Fire Department provides Fire protection, Fire prevention, Arson Investigation, first responder emergency medical services to the city of Fort Worth, Texas “To serve and protect our community through education, prevention and response.” In 1872 Fort Worth was incorporated by the Texas Legislature. It experienced rapid growth that year, when the plans for the Texas and Pacific Railway were announced. At that time most of the structures in the city were poorly built wooden structures or tents that burned easily; as was customary at the time, these structures were heated by wood fireplaces. Due to these conditions, large destructive fires were commonplace. In 1873 Captain Buckley C. Paddock organized the Fort Worth's first fire company and Ladder Company #1; the company consisted of 60 volunteers. The company began raising funds and purchased a hook and ladder wagon for $600.
Three years a Silsby steam engine was purchased for the sum of $6,250 and the city soon realized that it need a reliable source of water for fire fighting. The city council allocated the sum of $1,025 for the construction of 3 cisterns; these cisterns collectively held 63,000 gallons of water. In 1882 Fort Worth constructed a system of water mains; this system had a capacity of 4 million gallons of water a day. The city installed an electric fire alarm system, the first in Texas, 11 Gamewell pull boxes; however these and other fire department improvements had begun to strain the city's budget. On the night of May 30, 1890 a fire broke out on the second floor of the Texas Spring Palace. An estimated 7,000 people were there. In just mere minutes the building was engulfed in flames and the guest began jumping out of the second windows. Miraculously there only one fatality, A Englishman named Al Hayne, who had perished after rescuing several people from the fire; the fire at the Spring Palace became the catalyst for further improvements in fire equipment and personnel.
On December 1, 1893 Fort Worth's first professional fire company was incorporated. In 1904 saw the beginning of the tradition of Fort Worth Fire department apparatus being painted white; that year station #5 had been selected to represent Fort Worth at the annual Texas State Pump race, held at the State Fair of Texas in Dallas. The members of company #5 were unable to take their regular apparatus and instead had to use a reserve pumper; the pumper looked poor and with the city unwilling to provide funding, the men raised the money themselves. They took the pumper to E. E. Lennox Buggy only told Mr. Lennox to make it the prettiest wagon he could; when the members of the company returned, they found the wagon painted white with the trim and lettering in gold. The company won the $250 prize that year. Thereafter citizens of Fort Worth began to compliment the fire department on how beautiful the wagon was. Being pleased with all of the compliments the Fire Chief declared that all new and refurbished equipment was to be painted in white.
Fort Worth's apparatus was white until in 1981 a blue strip was added to the sides department's apparatus. On April 3, 1909 The Fort Worth Fire Department responded to a fire on the city's south side. Aided by a 40 mph wind, the fire grew and a general alarm was soon sounded. Two of the department's engines crashed while en route to the fire. Engine company #8 crashed into a telephone pole and Hose company #5's was put out of action when one of its horses slipped and broke one of its legs; the fire grew so hot. The fire burned out of control until it came to the natural barrier, the Texas and Pacific railroad's locomotive roundhouse and yard; this barrier prevented the fire from spreading further north thus sparing the downtown area. The department fought on bravely and when the fire was put out, more than 26 square blocks and 290 structures, including the Texas and Pacific station, were destroyed. In 1909 the city started to buy motorized equipment for the department; the first motorized vehicle was a car at the cost of $2,140.
By 1919 the department was motorized and all horse drawn equipment was withdrawn from service. During these year the department hired its first Fire Marshall and the city begun adopting several progressive fire codes. During the 1920s and the 1930s the department continued to expand along with the city; the department unionized 1935. The union began pressing for a minimum wage law and in 1937 the Texas legislature passed the law; this put a strain on the depleted city coffers and pitted management against labor. The City was only able to pay about 75 % of the minimum union sued for back pay; the chief at that time called a special meeting and informed his staff that he was unable to back them in their lawsuit against the city. During WWII The city had difficulty replacing its older equipment as the military had preference for all heavy equipment purchases; the city had been able to purchase some new equipment in the years. However, with 21 stations and the city expanding to 100 square miles, the departments resources were stretched thin.
During this time relations between the department management and the union continued to deteriorate. This came to a head in 1945; the post war era saw many changes to the department. The department was able to replace its outdated equipment. In 1947 the Texas Legislature passed a civil service act requiring police and fire departments to implement a competitiv
Downtown Fort Worth
Downtown Fort Worth is the central business district of Fort Worth, United States. Most of Fort Worth's tallest buildings and skyscrapers are located downtown. Sundance Square began as an effort by Sid Bass to revitalize downtown Fort Worth in the early 1980s. At the time, downtown Fort Worth was in decline due to suburbanization. There were many empty gaps between existing skyscrapers and historic buildings that resulted in a pedestrian-unfriendly atmosphere. During many trips to New York City, Sid Bass was fascinated with the urban atmosphere with retail shops, office buildings, museums all working together to form one cohesive experience for the public. Sid did not want to relocate his business to New York so he brought a little of New York to Fort Worth. Sid Bass employed Thomas E. Woodward, AIA, of Woodward & Taylor Architects, a Dallas architectural firm to design Sundance Square because of his experience with historic structures and commercial buildings. Lewis Faulkner, AIA was Manager for Woodward & Taylor.
Woodward & Taylor placed the Knights of Pythias Building on the U. S. Department of Interior's list of Historic Buildings & Places. Today, Sundance Square is a pedestrian-friendly cluster of blocks in a portion of downtown Fort Worth that features bars, museums and retail. Sundance Square has offices and residential units. Most buildings in Sundance Square are either historic or reconstructed, with two modern skyscrapers designed by Paul Rudolph, a hotel being exceptions. Sidewalks in Sundance Square are paved with brick. Lewis Faulkner, AIA Sundance Square Plaza is a 55,000 square foot plaza spanning two city blocks within Sundance Square; the plaza features four large Teflon umbrellas, a permanent stage built into the Westbrook building, jetted fountains that illuminate at night, various other fountains, a pavilion that can be rented. Sundance Square Plaza is bookended by two office buildings: The Commerce. Businesses within the Sundance Square Plaza include: Bird Cafe, Del Frisco's Grille, Jamba Juice, Silver Leaf Cigar Bar and Taco Diner.

Downtown Fort Worth is the central business district of the city, is home to many commercial office buildings, including four office towers over 450 feet tall. Radio Shack has its headquarters in Downtown Fort Worth. In 2001 Radio Shack bought the former Ripley Arnold public housing complex in Downtown Fort Worth for $20 million; the company razed the complex and had a 900,000 square feet corporate headquarters campus built after the City of Fort Worth approved a 30-year economic agreement to ensure that the company stayed in Fort Worth.
The company sold the building and, as of 2009, had two years left of a rent-free lease in the building. The company intended to make $66.8 million in the deal with the city. By 2009 it made $4 million. Downtown Fort Worth is home to the headquarters of Pier 1 Imports, XTO Energy, TPG Capital.

Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex
The Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex encompasses 13 counties within the U. S. state of Texas. Residents of the area refer to it as DFW, or the Metroplex, it is the economic and cultural hub of the region of North Texas, it is the largest inland metropolitan area in the United States. The Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex's population is 7,399,662 according to the 2017 U. S. Census estimate, making it the largest metropolitan area in both Texas and the South, the fourth-largest in the U. S. and the seventh-largest in the Americas. In 2016, DFW ascended to the number one spot in the nation in year-over-year population growth. In 2016, the metropolitan economy surpassed Houston to become the fourth-largest in the nation the region boasts a GDP of just over $613.4 billion in 2019. As such, the metropolitan area's economy is ranked 10th largest in the world; the region's economy is based on banking, telecommunications, energy and medical research, transportation and logistics. In 2017, Dallas–Fort Worth is home to 24 Fortune 500 companies, the third-largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies in the nation, behind New York City and Chicago.
The metroplex encompasses 9,286 square miles of total area: 8,991 sq mi is land, while 295 sq mi is water, making it larger in area than the states of Rhode Island and Connecticut combined. A portmanteau of metropolis and complex, the term metroplex is credited to Harve Chapman, an executive vice president with Dallas-based Tracy-Locke, one of three advertising agencies that worked with the North Texas Commission on strategies to market the region; the NTC copyrighted the term "Southwest Metroplex" in 1972 as a replacement for the previously-ubiquitous "North Texas", which studies had shown lacked identifiability outside the state. In fact, only 38 percent of a survey group identified Dallas and Fort Worth as part of "North Texas", with the Texas Panhandle a perceived correct answer, being the northernmost region of Texas.

New Mexico is a state in the Southwestern region of the United States of America. It is one of the Mountain States and shares the Four Corners region with Utah and Arizona. With a population around two million, New Mexico is the 36th state by population. With a total area of 121,592 sq mi, it is the fifth-largest and sixth-least densely populated of the 50 states. Due to their geographic locations and eastern New Mexico exhibit a colder, alpine climate, while western and southern New Mexico exhibit a warmer, arid climate; the economy of New Mexico is dependent on oil drilling, mineral extraction, dryland farming, cattle ranching, lumber milling, retail trade. As of 2016–2017, its total gross domestic product was $95 billion with a GDP per capita of $45,465. New Mexico's status as a tax haven yields low to moderate personal income taxes on residents and military personnel, gives tax credits and exemptions to favorable industries; because of this, its film industry contributed $1.23 billion to its overall economy.
Due to its large area and economic climate, New Mexico has a large U. S. military presence marked notably with the White Sands Missile Range. Various U. S. national security agencies base their research and testing arms in New Mexico such as the Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories. During the 1940s, Project Y of the Manhattan Project developed and built the country's first atomic bomb and nuclear test, Trinity. Inhabited by Native Americans for many thousands of years before European exploration, it was colonized by the Spanish in 1598 as part of the Imperial Spanish viceroyalty of New Spain. In 1563, it was named Nuevo México after the Aztec Valley of Mexico by Spanish settlers, more than 250 years before the establishment and naming of the present-day country of Mexico. After Mexican independence in 1824, New Mexico became a Mexican territory with considerable autonomy; this autonomy was threatened, however, by the centralizing tendencies of the Mexican government from the 1830s onward, with rising tensions leading to the Revolt of 1837.
At the same time, the region became more economically dependent on the United States. At the conclusion of the Mexican–American War in 1848, the United States annexed New Mexico as the U. S. New Mexico Territory, it was admitted to the Union as the 47th state on January 6, 1912. Its history has given New Mexico the highest percentage of Hispanic and Latino Americans, the second-highest percentage of Native Americans as a population proportion. New Mexico is home to part of the Navajo Nation, 19 federally recognized Pueblo communities of Puebloan peoples, three different federally recognized Apache tribes. In prehistoric times, the area was home to Ancestral Puebloans and the modern extant Comanche and Utes inhabited the state; the largest Hispanic and Latino groups represented include the Hispanos of New Mexico and Mexican Americans. The flag of New Mexico features the state's Spanish origins with the same scarlet and gold coloration as Spain's Cross of Burgundy, along with the ancient sun symbol of the Zia, a Puebloan tribe.
These indigenous, Mexican and American frontier roots are reflected in the eponymous New Mexican cuisine and the New Mexico music genre. New Mexico received its name long before the present-day nation of Mexico won independence from Spain and adopted that name in 1821. Though the name “Mexico” itself derives from Nahuatl, in that language it referred to the heartland of the Empire of the Mexicas in the Valley of Mexico far from the area of New Mexico, Spanish explorers used the term “Mexico” to name the region of New Mexico in 1563. In 1581, the Chamuscado and Rodríguez Expedition named the region north of the Rio Grande "San Felipe del Nuevo México"; the Spaniards had hoped to find wealthy indigenous Mexica cultures there similar to those of the Aztec Empire of the Valley of Mexico. The indigenous cultures of New Mexico, proved to be unrelated to the Mexicas, they were not wealthy, but the name persisted. Before statehood, the name "New Mexico" was applied to various configurations of the U.
S. territory, to a Mexican state, to a province of New Spain, all in the same general area, but of varying extensions. With a total area of 121,699 square miles, the state is the fifth-largest state of the US, larger than British Isles. New Mexico's eastern border lies along 103°W longitude with the state of Oklahoma, 2.2 miles west of 103°W longitude with Texas. On the southern border, Texas makes up the eastern two-thirds, while the Mexican states of Chihuahua and Sonora make up the western third, with Chihuahua making up about 90% of that; the western border with Arizona runs along the 109° 03'W longitude. The southwestern corner of the state is known as the Bootheel; the 37°N parallel forms the northern boundary with Colorado. The states of New Mexico, Colorado and Utah come together at the Four Corners in New Mexico's northwestern corner. New Mexico has no natural water sources
