MKT train w/F unit in Katy,Tx
Author: gcm

Nov 1975
Probably posted this before but reworked it.
GP40 204 leads a late evening westbound through Katy,Tx near Houston.
The few F units the Katy had left rarely made it to the Houston area so glad to see F7 72-C.
Passing the still in operation rice driers.

Nice piece of history, with a good glint shot too.

Interesting photos of Katy's popular safety stripes.  It looks like it took a lot of extra work to paint all those stripes.  I wonder if the visibility of the front end of the locomotives was actually any better than a simple bright yellow front end ?   Seems like somebody must have done some studies on it.  I guess  then ditch lights came along.
