    Traincation in DFW

    Yes Pete was wondering same thing about being so close to the tower...great photos btw.. Whenever I've been near the SW wye where you were a UP cop has told me to move..if you go a little bit south to the old SP Broadway Yard you don't get hassled.

    Comment by 'gohogs' in media 'UP Train passing old SP depot, Orange TX'

    I could see a restaurant there with a rail flavor..what kind of neighborhood is it? kind of reminds me of an abandoned two-story house in Big Sandy...If I hit the lotto I would love to buy it and refurbish it and either live there or turn it into a railroad bed & breakfast....
