This Weeks's Photo Send photos to photos@trainnews.org


The M-EGEY-14 (Manifest, Eagle Pass to East Yard) is just moments away from an inspection by Agents of the Border Patrol in Uvalde TX. Uvalde was the home and is the burial site of Vice President John Nance Garner, known as “Cactus Jack”.

Not uncommon in South Central Texas, solid strings of old boxcars, many bearing BKTY reporting marks shuttle from the Owens-Illinois plant in Waco TX to about 30 miles south of Eagle Pass.

What’s in those cars ? Beer and Beer Bottles. Bottles south, beer north. At East Yard in San Antonio, some cars will be switched out before the train will continue. Stay Thirsty, My Friends !
