PTRA – Back In The Day

October 25, 2011

With about 25% of PTRA’s locomotive fleet already in the new image that was rolled out this past July, and the balance slated to receive new paint by mid-2012, now might be a good time to look at some views at what will soon become nostalgia.

It’s Nov. 22, 2005 and PTRA 9602 and 9616 have just passed Manchester Jct. in southeast Houston with a southbound train of empty covered hoppers.

The same train is shown about a mile down the line, about to cross Sims Bayou.

Six days later, we see PTRA 9614 just east (railroad south) of Sinco. The LyondellBasell refinery is in the background.

Approaching Pasadena Junction, the 9614 encounters UP and BNSF power being hostled.
