The first one was from earlier this week and the other two from today-
1) UP GP with old style nose lettering, well the union is gone, but pacific is still there.
2) CN covered wagon at the UP yard getting ready to be put on a train. Taken from the street.
3) xCNW Operation Lifesaver on an empty soda ash train leaving the KCS tracks. Nothing like a little steam in the photo.
4) xCNW passing downtown Beaumont.

I remember when that unit was renumbered at Hinkle. It was renumbered from #2050 during a triennial inspection. We spray-painted out the numbers on the long hood and the nose and applied the Scotchlite decals (#550) on the cab, but left the "Union Pacific" on the short hood. It must have picked up the shield at some other shop/inspection down the line.

#2- It's been quite a while since I last saw anything worth while to pull the camera out on the caboose track. I would get it out for #1 too!

sunktankahemani - thanks for the background info.
Ruckus - I heard about one or two around the system, but I didn't think that I'd actually see one down here. I was going to pass this train up but I thought what the heck....
Mark - yep, not too much of anything on those tracks anymore!
grizz1213 - good catch on the CN 5548. The area that I shot the CNW op lifesaver didn't offer me too many opportunities to get a good shot with traffic and all.
