Got a couple of "Fallen Flag" covered hoppers and an ArroWedge on the last car of the stack train.

I appreciate y'all taking a look. Thanks.

Mike


5. Still pretty clean
6. Small "Buzzsaw" on this rusty Mopac hopper

Looks like you had a good day trackside Mike. Lots of EMD's today along with the GECX unit. I've recently had a couple of those units roll by the backyard. Nice catches of the older hoppers.

UHGSS-13 I'm guessing unit train Harlingen, TX to South St Paul, MN. Probably all empties; don't see any placards. No buffer car. Never seen that symbol before. Odd...

Thanks for the pics!

Nice catches Mike. Good to see foreign power and the old fallen flag logos.

I saw the GECX 7375 in Harlingen on Saturday. I didn't see anything unusual that would warrant a unit train, but I think the shortline that regularly stores freight cars may have released a block of empty tank cars.

A unit train of empty Mo-Pac gons departed Harlingen late Saturday night with a single unit, 9669.
