It’s quiet in Hearne TX at the GATX car refurbishing facility on a Sunday Afternoon. Nothing happening. On the other side of US79, UP is moving tonnage. Lots of tonnage. Just a few miles south, near Mumford, UP plans to build a massive yard that will consolidate just about all of the existing east Texas yards.

Tomorrow the GATX plant will come to life, and this switcher, GAHX No. 1 will rumble to life.
