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


At Hunter TX, Main 1 and Main 2 of the Austin Subdivision are within yards of each other. Main 1 is the former MOP; Main 2 is the former MKT. There is directional running here, with Main 1 being used primarily for southbound trains and Main 2 for northbounders. A KCSdeM vehicle train heads north. But the single unit is deceiving, there is a unit on the rear end, pushing. In a few minutes, the crossing gates will rise and traffic will return to the highway for a brief time. A tardy Texas Eagle is making up time for the station stop in San Marcos.
