One of my best friends, although he is no longer with us, 
had a birthday yesterday- Mr. R.L. Saucier (below).


TRAIN 70- SOUTH BOUND OIL TRAIN


Tonight we will be with Marvin Bennett, Jr.
We first see Train 70 at the north end of Morgan (above).

Here we see Train meeting a north bound freight in Brandon.



Next we spot Train 70 entering Robinson.
As Train 70 is a south bound oil train,
it picks up some cars in Robinson.


Train 70 is seen leaving Robinson and headed to Sue City.

More tank cars are picked up in Sue City.
