In March 2006, UP 5000 leads an eastbound train toward downtown El Paso.
Photographed from Yandell Dr. above Interstate 10 west of downtown, this

Everything visible behind the BNSF grain hoppers (which are hugging the eastern
bank of the Rio Grande) is in Mexico. The Rio Grande is visible above the middle
of the second locomotive.
