1985 was the year Katy Ind. agreed to sell the rr to UP.  It was a couple years later the sale was implemented,
but those MKT cars were on borrowed time.  Somewhere I have photos of that string of cars on the left track of
your photo, out on the line on an inspection of the railroad.

Those F40s look good!  I miss that paint scheme.

Train certainly had plenty of power.  The passengers are an interesting group.
Thanks for the Amtrak photo posting.

Wow, so much has changed, aside from the Amtrak train itself. In the first photo, the two tracks the photographer is standing between now have catenary over them and is solely used for DART trains. The track Amtrak is on is primarily used by Trinity Railway Express commuter trains to and from Fort Worth. Amtrak today primarily uses the next track over from that. And the Reunion Arena in the background was torn down several years ago.

Didn't those cars end up on the Georgetown Railroad?

I miss the Gifford Hill rock trains.
