This Weeks's Photo Send photos to photos@trainnews.org


This is Fort Stockton Texas and the railroad is the Texas Pacifico. There are cars of frac sand everywhere, being part of the Permian Basin oil patch. It takes several million pounds of frac sand to open up each well. Texas Pacifico runs from San Angelo Junction Tx to Alpine Tx now, but work is under way to repair and upgrade the line south to the Mexican border at Presidio. Still to be done is the rebuilding of the International Bridge which burned some years ago. Today, the leased GP38s shuffle sand cars in the yard. And not a reporting mark on them except the large CIT Logo.
