    Uprr - sait 4/21/2012

    With the caveat that I'm still fairly new at this... I live west of San Antonio in Kerrville, in an area with no local rail activity. My experience at SAIT was moderate - although I was on public property, outside any fenced or signed area, we were still run off by UPRR security people...
