Some days, it’s all about the sky.

This is Harwood Texas and a BNSF trackage rights train, eastbound. To the left, there are about 100 new tank cars rusting to the rails on the Texas, Gonzales and Northern tracks. The tank cars were built in Mexico and have a build dat of 1/2020. They haven’t turned a wheel in revenue service.

But no matter, the weather pattern is perfect for fair weather skies. And today, that is what really matters.
