Shortest Intermodal Train Ever?

March 11, 2010

KCS 628 holds an IJALZ at West Junction, Jan. 26, 2007

It’s one thing to see a local with one car, but a long-distance intermodal with one trailer?  The IJALZ (Intermodal Jackson, MS to Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico) is waiting for a new crew at West Junction, in southwest Houston.

One can only guess at why the train consists of but one trailer. My guess is that the KCS has committed to running the train for shippers, regardless of traffic.
