It'e been a while since I posted anything, so here you go...

First up, I caught a Point Comfort & Northern train on the Cuero Sub at Flatonia, TX, so I chased it to Muldoon, TX to get a decent shot of it with the "across the field" view at the north end of the siding:

After getting the PC&N train, I moved up to the ex-Katy and found a couple trains. Here's a SB (EB) rock train just outside of Smithville, TX.

In Smithville, heres a WB mixed freight. It's probably a detour off the Sunset due to extensive track work between Seguin, TX and Waelder, TX:

That is some pretty scenery down there in Texas, especally on the 2nd shot. Nice shots Patrick.
