AT&SF Railway unit coal train by semaphore signal at Manhattan, TX

The Houston Power & Light unit coal train is at the north end of AT&SF Railway's Manhattan, TX siding on May 15, 1978. At that time this subdivision was dispatched by train orders and there were quite a few semaphore signals still on this line. The BN units are run thru power that will take the train all the way to Smithers Lake. Cut in about two-thirds deep is a three unit helper. Manhattan is 37 miles north of Temple.
