UP 844 in Hearne Again

It's Monday October 29th and the 844 has left Bryan northbound for its day destination of Hearne Texas. Hearne is becoming the 844's home in Texas with all the sleep overs it received this year. Anyway, the train left Bryan on the Navasota sub and headed out to Mumford. At Mumford it was Navasota sub to Giddings sub for a trip into Hearne. Trains rarely go this route now with the directional running the UP employs on the Giddings sub.

Coming up behind the UP 844 was the rest of the passenger cars lead by UP 1988, the MKT heritage locomotive. This train eased up to Valley Junction for a crew change and then it was off to the Dallas area.

The UP 844 will stay in Hearne for 2 days and depart for Ft Worth on Thursday November 1.
