Semaphore signals at MP Junction in East Dallas

At MP Junction trains on the former Texas & Pacific are diverted south around the city of Dallas on Southern Pacific trackage. The sign on the signal may say End CTC but this is actually the end of the block controlled by the interlocking tower at Belt Junction about three miles away. The original name for this junction was T&P Junction. It was changed to MP Junction in 1978 and to UP Junction in 1989. The picture above was taken on November 1, 1980 while the picture below was taken on April 28, 1979. That is the local on its way from Plano back to Miller Yard. Disk 93
