Today I spotted a westbound empty UP coal train in Arlington, Texas, on the UP Dallas Subdivision. The lead engine was UP 6769, and I later learned that the symbol for this train was CSFSM2-09. Obviously the C stands for coal, SF is the unknown origin I'm looking for, and SM stands for Somerset, CO. Would appreciate any assistance in this request. You can reach me directly at my e-mail of rwhitenight2004@gmail.com. TIA.

These were empty coal cars that was stored at Suffolk, TX. I remember when the empty train ran down there a few months ago. They have been re-activated and are heading up to Colorado for revenue service.

SF = Suffolk, TX.
