About eight mile north of Sinton TX, a southbound KCS freight is about to cross the road that leads to the Welder Wildlife Refuge. The refuge was created by the will of Robert Welder in 1954 and encompasses about 7800 acres of prime wildlife habitat.

To the south is Sinton TX, established in 1855 on the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railroad. It is the county seat of San Patricio County and in 2010 had a population of just over 5700 folks.
