SP Heritage Returns to Houston

March 29, 2010

After heading to the Valley late last week on the MEWOL train, UP’s SP Heritage  SD70ACe 1996 returned to Houston this morning on the MOLEW-27  (Manifest Olmito,TX to Englewood Yard).

The rare combination of Heritage power / good weather / acceptable light and sufficient notice motivated me to get some video and a few stills of the UP 1996 as it entered Houston this morning.

Most of its route was somewhat backlit, so that’s on video, but I was able to get a few stills after it turned into the sun at Tower 26 for the last 2 miles into Englewood Yard.

The video shows the train at South Mykawa, T&NO Junction, CP H237, Bell (between CP LF360 and CP LF359) , and at the west end of Englewood Yard.

    Great work Robert! I’m never brave enough to shoot both stills and video so it is refreshing to see both in one presentation.
