    UP 1995

    Sometimes luck just falls in your lap. Case in point: On the drive home from West Texas to DFW, I came across the CNW heritage unit sitting in the siding as a DPU unit for an eastbound manifest right next to a frontage road exit off I-20, with the sun also at my back. Pretty good luck when...

    UP 7875

    A westbound stacker has paused in front of the ancient SP Depot in Sanderson for a meet with an eastbound freight during a late, cool November afternoon in West Texas. The truck in the background is departing the scene after dropping off a crewmember during the brief stop.

    A twister? In THAT area of Texas?? Nah, odds are a flash flood would get it if the levees they built since the last major flood hit that town don't hold.

    Don't forget the old SP water car they got stored out there that was built in 1943, and let's just hope that there's a chance to fix up the old passenger depot out there someday, before that place just collapses on itself. Oh yeah, and be sure to hit the Roundhouse Cafe when you through...
  6. Birthday Shot!

    Birthday Shot!

    I decided to hit Saginaw to snap some photos for my 25th b-day. Although traffic was kind of slow for being out there for a few hours, with this UP trackage rights freight over the BNSF Alliance Sub being the only train I bagged, the beautiful weather and good lighting made it a pretty decent...

    UP 4104

    I decided to break in my new Sony a300 camera out at Saginaw over the weekend. I wish the sunlight was at a better angle for this shot, but overall, I'm pretty impressed with the camera's abilities, even in unfavorable conditions.

    Thanks for the rates, y'all. Oh yeah, and Dave, I saw on here and on rp.net of the photos you took of this unit as well. What's crazy is that you weren't too far from where us, probably just a little further south from the interlocker.
  12. SP 9721

    SP 9721

    Finally, an SP unit in the lead, where it should be! GP60 9721 leads a southbound manifest past the interlocker at Saginaw.

    A UP GP60 rounds the curve and leads a rock train past the Reunion Arena and Union Station.
  14. Faded Glory

    Faded Glory

    TRE 568 waits around Union Station to pick up rush-hour commuters. I really hope they repaint the Lone Star on the locomotive soon......
  15. Busy Day in Downtown Dallas

    Busy Day in Downtown Dallas

    From right to left: A TRE commuter train is waiting for its next departure, the Texas Eagle has just stopped to pick up passengers, and a UP MOW crew is on the center main fixing a broken rail.

    A southbound freight of tankers led by a pair of C44-9's hits the interlocker.
  17. KCS 4602

    KCS 4602

    I wasn't expecting these 3 units (KCS 4605, CEFX 132, TFM 1603) to be running a BNSF grain train, but hey, I'll take it any day.
  18. UP 5537
