Default Flatonia, TX Action

Its been a long time since I posted, and was finally able to get out see some TX trains this past weekend. I was out on UP's Sunset Route near Flatonia, TX and have a couple pictures to share. It was a good day of railfanning with 4 KCS trackage rights trains, a BNSF trackage rights train, and a variety of UP freight (coal, intermodal, mixed, and grain).

Anyways, first up is a EB KCS trackage rights train seen from the operator's window in the old SP Flatonia interlocking tower.

Next, an EB UP freight with the Flatonia tower mentioned in the first picture.

Lastly, another SD70ACe, this time from UP, leads a WB intermodal under the Flatonia water tower.
