This coal train is bound for San Antonio’s City Public Service generating station. It is fresh from the paint booth and sports the latest generation of Union Pacific livery.

This is the north end of Muldoon Siding in the town of the same name. Muldoon was named after a local priest when the townsite was part of the Spanish Empire. Today, Muldoon is a quiet backwater town with no businesses operating. That may change in the near future as a large solar farm is being built just south of town.
