Amtrak Tr 1, the Sunset Limited rolls through Dryden Tx in Terrell County. This is a sparsely populated part of the Lone Star State – only about 1100 people live in the county, which is over 2600 square miles of desert.
Dryden, named after the Chief Engineer of the Galveston, Harrisburg and San Antonio RWY boasts of 13 residents.

Train 1 likely will not need to stop on flag in Sanderson TX and will continue uninterrupted to the crew change in Alpine TX, a gateway to the Big Bend and home of Sul Ross University.
