MKT freight
Title:  MKT freight
Description:  It looks like all GP40 units headed east between Houston and Katy. Today all of this is gone. UP abandoned this portion of the Katy. I-10 expansion covers the right-of-way and the fields in the background are solid shopping centers,subdivisions and concrete. UP kept the line from the town of Katy to the west (Katy is where the rice elevators are in the far background).
