Trains On UP Palestine Sub.

UP & BNSF trains on Palestine Sub. best I can recollect.

LHR 35 The UP Conroe Local runs Mon.-Fri North from Spring, Tx Lloyd Yard as far North as Phelps, Tx

I HOYC UP- Houston Settegast Yard to Yard Center Illinois in Chicago area. Our only Intermodal. Called at Houston about 2:30 AM. Past Conroe about 4:00 to 5:00.

Q AGNL UP- Angleton Tx. to North Little Rock AR

Q EWNL UP- Houston Englewood Yard to North Little Rock.(Not Sure still runs)

Q HOMA J BNSF- Houston BNSF New South Yard to Madison Il. ( TRRA St. Louis) Power seems to come in on BNSF Houston Sub day before)

Q SRAS UP- Strang Yard Pasadena, Tx to Alton Southern at Valley Jct near St Louis Mo. .

Q HONL UP- Houston Settegast Yard to North Little Rock AR..

Q HOSH UP- Houston Settegast Yard to Shreveport, La.. Mixed freight.

Q PTNL UP- From PTRA to North Little Rock AR.

Q HOME J BNSF- Houston to Memphis

Of coarse you get more than this on Palestine Sub. because of Hearne to Palestine traffic merging in Palestine.
