Last fall we had some talk about UP restarting work on the new Brazos Yard. I was skeptical that UP would try to complete the original project. I am curious if UP has anything in the budget for Brazos or if any work has continued there?

Brazos is open with bids up to fill out the boards there…MBZBT and MBZHO are running everyday to and through now.

Does the engine changes include making all 600 of them them AC instead of DC?

Thanks,is UP just using some of the tracks that already had been built when the project was halted? Are you seeing any signs of new construction?

They’ve always used the yard, but just the run through tracks for block swapping. NLBW sets out there along with the SPFW..I’m sure there are others but I only know about our (Houston) trains. They put jobs up for bid this week.
