SP Action in Lake Charles, LA
June 2, 1991 - EsPee Action Uploaded to YouTube
Today's YouTube upload provides a look at activity on the Southern Pacific in Lake Charles, LA on June 12, 1991.
Three trains star beginning with eastbound Houston to New Orleans/CSX train HOCXM accelerating out of the east end of town with three CSXT GP40s: 6245, 6794, and 6717.
During the beginning of this clip we can hear the train dispatcher giving the second train, SP 7338 west, DTC authority in blocks Westlake through Sabine. So we head west and catch SP SD40R 7338 and SP B30-7 7869 rolling towards Westlake with Avondale, LA to Strang, TX train AVSRM - the classic Nathan P3 horn sounding great!
Finally we head back into town to see a pair of SP SW1500's, 2498 and 2662, crossing over the main track and pulling into town with interchange traffic from the Union Pacific. This set ends with some pacing action!
