Leaving McAllen

A former Kiamichi unit leads a healthy train for Harlingen, Texas. Green paint would soon cover up the reddish-brown. The transitional paint didn't last long.
I saw the 1705 and was getting ready to ask when did they fix the unit, then I saw your date of 2003.

Cool shot.
Ok. Hard to see but yes I agree. Did you work with RVSC or just a photgrapher? I worked with them for a short time in 2007.
Just an occasional photographer. I rarely chased the various jobs as I was hurrying to go somewhere. There was a derailment on the former SP yard in McAllen on Tue 4/20, but I am too busy to view it at Pecan xing.
Good to hear. I await to see those pictures. On a sad note but the truth. I do have other RVSC pics I am working on to post.
