The Quick and the Dead. FerroMex 4037, the Quick, races past the Dead at Kingsbury Texas on a muggy August afternoon. Even a year ago, it was not uncommon to find dead trains tucked away in sidings on the Sunset Route for the lack of crews. Likewise, it is not uncommon to find FerroMex power plying the route.
