Hit the road Saturday to see the Katy heritage unit for the first time on its latest trip west through So Cal. Nice looking loco and the spotless ACes trailing looked great also. Hope you enjoy the photos.
1. Found the train stopped in the yard at Victorville.
Turns out the 1988 was...
UP 1988 leads a string of baretables out of the siding at Castroville, California in February of 2009. The UP painted up this new locomotive in honor of the Missouri Kansas Texas railroad which became part of the Union Pacific system in the 1980's.
The crew\'s left her a few minutes earlier just north of Hearne on her way into Houston. Hearne is about 1.5hrs NW of Houston and is used by UP as an outer staging zone. This one didn't even get into the yard however, and this is a common parking spot along Texas 6.
