New South Yard around 10

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.
