Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad Extra 319 South near Hicks, TX

Train 21 (Extra 319 South) is slowly climbing out of the valley from Newark up to Hicks on August 12, 1978. I'm on the old US Highway 287 bridge. That track veering off to the left leads into the Trinity Railcar car shop. At one time the track went to a power plant on the east side of Eagle Mountain Lake. Almost a year later, train 26 (Extra 4542 North) was approaching the same highway bridge at Hicks on April 14, 1979. Train 26 has engines 4542, 4463, and 4437. Off in the distance is downtown Fort Worth. Disk 87
