Hallelulah and eight units
Title:  Hallelulah and eight units
Description:  A northbound SP train passes through Beeville enroute Houston in August 1972. This is serious flatland railroad territory, so anything more than three units can be considered unusual; seven big six axle motors is very odd and the Conrail U25B (2675) only makes this movement all the more notable.
