Back to the yard

TM 853 drags a cut of cars from the border bridge to its original Laredo yard. It is passing the former passenger depot (out of view left) when TM attempted to run its own passenger trains from Laredo to Corpus Christi (1988?). This was my favorite TM diesel.
Good Shot and info. Too bad TM was bought out by KCS and discountined Passenger Service. They should have continued it and expanded to Rio Valley area. The south can rise again if the right people put it together.
