I caught a lash-up of four UP units and one Helm Leasing locomotive idling north of Austin White Lime at McNeil, Texas. It looked like they were being checked over by the engineer before he used them to pull out the coal cars parked on the spur.

It seems like this is a rare location for photographers to capture, as most of them take picture a little south of here, at the McNeil Junction (UP x AUAR). But this was where the train was!
