ABOVE: Led by former SP GP40-2 2009, Cres- son-based Job 502 is lining up cars in the in- dustrial park west of Cleberne on April 11, 2011. The Fractech sand distribution facility in the background is one of a handful of cus- tomers based in this industrial park. BELOW LEFT: Job 103 with two GP38-3s grinds up- grade out of the Trinity River valley and is passing under Union Pacific's east-west main through Fort Worth which is visible in the dis- tance. The vantage point for this shot is the West Rosedale Street overpass.


Subdivision that make for fine photo props, however the signals stand dark as the system was deactivated in 1994. FWWR radio frequencies include road channels 160.215 and 160.440, with switching operations conducted on 160.785. Listening in to BNSF and Union Pacific dispatchers will provide clues to FWWR train movements as they traverse the busy Fort Worth area. BNSF’s DS22 (160.650) controls the diamond crossing at Tower 60 on north side of Fort Worth. Union Pacif- ic’s Fort Worth Terminal Dispatcher (161.280) handles jobs between Hodge Yard and the Everman Branch connec- tion just east of Tower 55 in downtown Fort Worth.


Conclusion Yes, it’s true: Things in Texas are


big. And as the Fort Worth & Western proves, even big things can get bigger. The colorful matched locomotive con- sists certainly stand out from their sur- roundings, providing a visual treat for the photographer. From the Metroplex to Cowtown to the rolling Texas hills, this short line brings out the best of the Lone Star State.
