A BNSF freight, using trackage rights on the UP Sunset Route rolls off the bridge over the Dry Frio River near Knippa TX. The Frio River is very close by, you can see them almost together from the parallel US 90 highway.

Numerous BNSF trains ply the Sunset Route, crossing the international border at Eagle Pass TX.
