BNSF 5260 is westbound through Lone Star Jct. at Texico, NM on July 22, 2008.

BNSF C44-9W 5260 rounds the curve and rumbles through Lone Star Jct. at Texico, NM just inside New Mexico. Lone Star Jct. is where the Slaton branch (on the right) leaves the transcon and immediately enters Texas at Farwell. The stacker has raised the local pigeon population as it heads west toward Clovis.
