2016 Circus Train In The House – Via The Back Door

July 5, 2016

The RB-B&B circus train made its 2016 San Antonio to Houston trip on July 5, 2016. The train detoured on the BNSF between Rosenberg – Houston account UP’s Brazos River bridge is out of service.

In previous years, the train typically gets to the Houston area in the evening. This year it arrived much earlier than normal, 2:45 PM at Rosenberg, where it shoved onto the BNSF at Tower 17.

Because it never gets into Houston in good sun, I had high hopes today to get nice light on this train. Maybe next year. The clouds did a number on me each time the train came into view. Once the head end got by me, the clouds opened up. Close, but no cigar.

I caught the train at two locations. The first run-by, at 3:45 PM, is at Richmond, TX near MP 61 of BNSF’s Galveston sub. The second run-by is at South Creek, near MP 9 of the Mykawa sub, at 5:30 PM
