Houston Power & Light stops for train orders at Decatur, TX

About twenty minutes earlier, the train was stopped in Decatur (milepost 40) to get updated train orders for the meet with a loaded train that had been late getting into Wichita Falls. The engineer is climbing onto the second unit to call the conductor on the radio. The Santa Fe unit has a radio but it doesn't work on the BN frequencies. Once the conductor has the new instructions, the train will continue west.
