Re: Fw: Train symbols

Is anyone entirely sure that the H-DYTGAL replaces the H-HOUGAL? While I
spotted the H-HOUGAL9-25 today, and it is a Sunday.....BNSF also ran an
H-HOUGAL9-24 yesterday (Saturday). There was also an H-HOUGAL9-22
(Thursday). The H-HOUGAL has been getting out of New South Yard around 10
a.m. daily, and using the ex-SP Harrisburg Line to West Jct., then the ex-SP
Glidden Sub (Sunset Route) to Tower 17/Rosenberg where it gets on BNSF

What route does the H-DYTGAL use? Perhaps the H-DYTGAL is purely an
extension of the H-HOUGAL on days when chemical traffic out of Dayton is
heavy enough to justify originating a train other than the roadswitcher jobs
which normally serve Dayton?

Terry, the H-DYTGAL is a replacement for the H-HOUGAL. It originates in
Dayton Yard at Houston on the UP. It runs daily except Sunday. good
catch on that, I hadn't seen it yet. The Sommerville train is a bit of a
mystery. There is a M-TULSVL that runs 6 days per week, but it still
shows to terminate at Temple. I don't quite understand the Sommerville
symbol when the schedule terminates at Temple. I need to check into this
some more.
