With track gangs on BNSF and UP, it's darn quiet around here lately. UP has a pile driver trackside in Sugar Land, so you know it's serious. But since rain is in the forecast, I thought it wise to spend what time I could muster trackside at lunch today. The Rosenberg crew did not disappoint.:D

They spent most of my lunch time shuffling the industrial spur just north of Rosenberg. As they have to cross Hwy 36 multiple times, I'm sure it gets a bit nervous stopping traffic as they cross a 65 MPH highway....it gave me time to polish off the chinese i got for lunch.... and if I had moved up to where they actually were, I would have had some lousy light (and cold orange chicken). I figure I can risk them coming south and facing the sun rather than going north and shooting into it. If I'm wrong, well, I still got out at lunch...;)

So eventually they finish up and head back to town to shut down in the siding. There's a couple of switches to throw along the way, so riders are enjoying the weather while it holds. (btw, 75 today...:eek:).

Very similar to operations along Mykawa Rd, Ken. You almost always caught a local switch job doing something over there.
yep, but Rosenberg feels a lot safer! And in general, there's a ton more traffic. The Mykawa local still used a caboose last time I saw it, but that's been a few years back. I haven't been in that area since the job change. Might be worth some time soon....
