MKT train symbol 106 between West Point and Smithville, TX

On December 13, 1977 I stopped in the yard office at Smithville to inquire about train movements and discovered that there were two trains headed to Smithville from Houston. I encountered train 106 about two and a half miles west of West Point where the MKT crosses the SP line down to Flatonia.
