Amtrak E and SDP40F units
Title:  Amtrak E and SDP40F units
Description:  The two E units (looks like ex-UP) are being pulled off the northbound Lone Star at Cleburne,Tx. The Lone Star almost always used SDP40F units -- so the day before there must have been a problem with them as the Lone Star arrived in Houston with these two E units. The E's were used on the InterAmerican (a few serviced in Cleburne). SDP40F #510 and another ex-UP E will take the train north. The Lone Star never (at least I never saw it till this moment) changed power in Cleburne or anywhere else between Houston and Chicago (except for a unit added at Ft.Worth from the Dallas section).
