This oil train departed from the Howard Energy Terminal in Corpus Christi at mid-morning. It is now west of Alice TX having passed through Robstown earlier. The huge yucca makes an impressive lineside prop for the train on its’ way to Laredo TX.

Alice is named after the daughter of Capt Richard King, founder of the famed King Ranch. It is the seat of Jim Wells County.
