Miss Katy Returns to Houston

June 27, 2011

I received word that Union Pacific SD70ACe 1988, the MKT heritage unit, would be returning to the Houston area this past Sunday, June 26th. It was the lead unit on the ILBBC-23 train. (Long Beach-Barbours Cut intermodal)

I headed west to intercept the train around the East Bernard area. I caught two trains before the 1988 arrived.

First was a WB empty auto rack train led by NS 9974. It took the siding at East Bernard to meet UP 7663, a short intermodal.

It was followed by the UP 1988, which I chased to Willowbend Drive where the train was tied down for a crew change.

    Ok, so how do you find out when all these special trains (Miss Katy, UP business train, etc.)will be going through Houston?
