MKT freight Editors Pick!        
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).

Doug Wooten General Besides the SP the Katy was my next favorite railroad. I like the John Deere green. Nice Shot. The closest Katy unit I've operated is the Katy Heritage unit unless I had some UP power that was ex-MKT. 11/2/2008 8:42:36 AM
Jim Vivian General The good old days! Never saw her on home rails, but they made it east on the CMSTP&P as well as the C&NW thankfully! 3/10/2012 5:02:12 AM
