UP EB at Tower 87 in Houston, TX Jan. 20, 2008

I recently posted this shot from the east end of Englewood, looking east. It’s a  medium telephoto view which didn’t give a good view of the overall area. Let’s look at the big picture…

CSXT 5288 crossing UP's Houston East Belt Sub on Jan. 29, 2009

We’re at the same location just over one year later. Shooting at 28mm gives a better view of the overall area. Note the new signals have been put in service.

The track in the left background takes you to the south end of  Settegast (ex MP) yard. Background right is the incline leading to the Englewood hump.

PS-You’d think that I could get some UP power on either of these two UP trains….
