SP freight over I-10 in Houston -- Feb 78
Author: gcm

Looks like GP9 units with a GP30 on the rear.
This was between Chaney Jct and Eureka Jct in Houston.
At Eureka Jct this train will either head north on the Dallas line or continue west on the Sunset Route.

20' container on trailer frames (dollies?), brings back memories! Thank you for sharing!

No graffiti, I10 is the same width - oh to have traffic like that again!

From less than a mile from there

That's quite the structure for a two-track bridge.

All four of the cars are Ford products.

I drove under that bridge twice today. Looks about the same.

However, the motive power has changed somewhat.
