Longer Trains to Start Moving Through Fort Stockton

Staff Report

FORT STOCKTON - People in Fort Stockton get ready to see some mile long trains come through.

Those trains are expected to go back and forth through town about four times a week on the Texas-Pacifico Railroad Line.

It's all because TXPF will be transporting gas transmission pipe sections for the Waha Project.

The pipe will be stored at and then distributed from the existing staging yard along Interstate 10 in Fort Stockton.

The railroad will carry the pipe cars through Fort Stockton to Belding where the pipe sections will then be trucked up to Interstate 10.

Officials say the delivery of pipe by rail should continue for about a year.
