Re: Triple Underpass (Dallas)

Look closely, Skip, and you can see the "crossover" (for lack of a better term) above the bridge, where the three streets have a crossover to get to one street with a median between eastbound and westbound lanes (as you look up the picture going west).

And how did the traffic manage the crossover from I guess Commerce to Main on to Elm going east before the triple underpass?  It's hard to see if there was a traffic light or traffic sign, yield or stop?  The traffic had to cross two different flows of traffic.  Amazing.

Here's a shot (courtesy of Flashback Dallas) showing the Triple Underpass about
20 years later.   Two things:  Note the T&P MofW cars about the same location as
the boxcars in the 1930s view I posted first.  Also, traffic on Elm is bidirectional unlike
today's traffic flow.

The last train to cross was on August 8, 2015. Train traffic was relocated to a new International Bridge around 7 miles up stream with a new yard and port facilities. There is a truck and auto bridge parallel to this swing bridge. According to local lore the bridge swung but  once in 1910. No riverboat traffic. The bridge was historic marketed but I don't know if it still stands. Mexican Government and Union Pacific owned the bridge. Track relocations took place on both sides that improved local traffic.

The presence of railings on both sides of the spans, the bridged also served wagon traffic.  Does anyone know of this structure is still in use?

Last international passenger train to/from Texas

Dennis Hogan
 

I have a candidate operating at least until 1954.

How late did the MP operate a passenger train from Laredo where
the passengers did not have to taxi back and forth while the train
crossed the International Bridge?

Chasing a windmill train

Nathan Herring
 

Hello all, 

Received intel yesterday of a loaded windmill blade train UHRTBIS130A (Harlingen, TX x Bishop, WY) coming north up the Plainview Sub out of Slaton. I left the house around 2 and proceeded south down I-27 to Tulia, where I got on Hwy 87 as it stays along the tracks. A few miles south of town I ran into the train so I got turned around and headed back to Kaffir where I caught the train topping a nice hogback.


I took off as soon as the train cleared and headed north to “the town without a frown” Happy where I caught the train passing the local skyscrapers.


Taking off after the train again I headed north into a moderate wait as the train stopped at MP 580 to wait for a track warrant for the remaining 9 miles of the sub. After they got a fresh warrant, I caught the train rounding the curve at the Hungate Rd. Crossing


I then proceeded to Lubbock Jct. where the Plainview Sub joins the Hereford Sub for the run to Amarillo. Due to the outbound crew not being available til 8 pm, the train never passed in the time I had remaining. But I captured this westbound ZWSPLAC730L passing under the signal bridge.


After I finished supper, I headed down to McMasters St. in Amarillo where the 3999 was sitting waiting for the outbound crew, they used the delay to fill the tanks on it for its trip north.


Thanks for looking
