Englewood Yard in Houston – Pic of the Day

January 31, 2010

UP Train ZYCHO at Houston, TX on Oct. 31, 2006

This photo was one of my attempts to get the UP 1982, MP Heritage unit, on the point of a train.

I knew the 1982 was in the consist of the ZYCHO (Expedited Yard Center[Chicago area] to Houston), and typically the Heritage unit will lead, but as you can see, it wasn’t meant to be.

I selected this shot to post because it gives a nice view of Englewood Yard. I’m at the east end of the yard, looking west. The yard office and hump are just out of the frame, to the left.

You can click on the picture to see a larger version of the shot. It’s 1400 pixels wide to allow you to really see some detail. Enjoy…
