These units were parked down from the yard office in Muskogee, OK on May 11, 2013.

This UP south bound freight is first seen near the engine terminal of the former Katy yard in Muskogee, OK on July 8, 2013.

I headed to the "Katy Station" parking lot. This switch engine was my first train. I saw it several more times at this end of the yard and the north end of the yard.

The first train was a switcher with a few cars which then worked the west end of the yard on April 25, 2014.

I got a report around noon on Memphis Rail Fans on Dec. 12, 2011 that BNSF Officer's Special O-ENIAMO 2-11 (Enid, OK to Amory, MS) was headed down the Thayer sub. I headed to Kentucky Street and waited. The first train was this local headed to West Memphis and the industries south of Bridge Jct.

This UP switcher is seen westbound at CN Jct on May 23, 2014.

These units were at the north end of the yard in McGehee, AR on Jan. 2, 2014 .

Meanwhile I move down to MLK Street and shoot the leased switchers working the south end of the yard on June 12, 2012.

These units were sitting near the UP Muskogee Yard Office in Muskogee, OK on June 14, 2013.
