Santa Fe double stack train symbol QCVAL in the siding at Clyde, TX

For many years Clyde was the western end of CTC out of Fort Worth. From here west to Sierra Blanca it was regular block signals and train orders (track warrants after about 1984 and converted to CTC in 2009). The Santa Fe obtained trackage rights over the UP from Tecific (east of Sweetwater) to Tower 55 in Fort Worth in late 1992. Santa Fe train symbol QCVAL is in the siding at Clyde to meet train symbol QALLA on May 13, 1995. The train had engines 5122 and 537. From 1992 to the ATSF and BN merger at the end of 1996, the Santa Fe was running more trains on the former T&P main line than the UP was running. Disk 105
