Texas Railroad Sesquicentennial: Gulf Coast area

UP local L-HU08X was approaching Houston's Harrisburg Jct. when Jimmy Barlow snapped this photo on September 7, 2003. Since the rails where the BBB&C began (just east of this location) are now gone, this junction is the only place on today's line to Stafford where the name Harrisburg is found.

The train in the photo is operating on the Union Pacific Strang Subdivision (ex-SP to Galveston); the former BBB&C (now the UP Glidden Subdivision) is the track curving off to the right.
