Train TT130 is near West Walker with engines 5002, 7130, 5001, and Oakway 9049. The little hill that I was standing on to take these pictures no longer exists. It was hauled away as fill material for the third main line.

Train TT130 is going to Xcel Energy's (was Southwestern Public Service) Roy Tolk Station at Mill, TX (near Muleshoe).

The train is turned over to the Santa Fe at Pueblo. Since the line from near La Junta down to Amarillo is dark territory, the train uses a caboose. Train TT130 has 111 loads and one empty (the caboose) at 14,467 tons. Disk 81
