Yermo-bound Military Special Through Houston Today
Author: TexBob

I happened across a UP military special this afternoon. Symboled SNOYR (Special New Orleans - Yermo),
it’s the equipment for a Fort Polk (LA) unit that’s en route to the Fort Irwin National Training Center (CA).

Power is UP 5565 / UP 7640 / CSXT 389 / CSXT 7776.

Video shot at Stafford, TX (MP 20.25 of UP’s Glidden sub) on 3/14/2017.

Sorry about the idiot in the corner of the screen. I tried throwing rocks and screaming at him to get out of my video, but it was no use.
His pictures were more important than my video. Sad!  :-)

Allegedly another train like this about a day behind this one. We'll see tomorrow...

Caught this guy in Yuma Az over midday-new power, but similar vehicle numbers on lead flats...pretty impressive!

Well, as it turned out, the train I saw in Yuma was a section that ran in front of this one. I saw this section on the start of my return home along I-8. Was nice to see both even though I got limited pix of the first one (UP no trespassing signs in plain view) and nothing of the second due to driving.

Why would your video be more important that his pictures.
