The Baytown Bullet

February 17, 2010

I had a few minutes between video depositions today. What to do? Get some lunch or see if something’s running? Duh…

UP SD60M 2422 crossing Greens Bayou on the Baytown Sub on Feb. 17, 2010

It didn’t take long before I came across UP 2422, a really sharp looking SD60M, leaving Market Street Yard with a trainload of empty plastics hoppers and chemical cars headed for Coady Yard in Baytown.

This train is at MP 3.5 of the Baytown Sub in east Houston, near the intersection of Federal Road and Market Street. This trackage is ex MP route to the chemical plants and refineries in Baytown, about 20 miles east of Houston.

The train was doing all of 10 mph as it went by me. The speed limit for this sub is 20 mph as it cuts through mostly residential areas, with numerous grade crossings.
