In TX, on the Sunset Route, new sidings at Hacienda (w of Uvalde) Inge on the e/ side of Uvalde and what I think will be called Yucca. Noonan (btw LaCoste and Dunlay) are 15000 ft. A new siding e of Hondo, called Medina is also 15000. Ditto Kingsbury and Anachacho. The siding at Flatonia is also now 15000.
That's clearly the plan, fewer but longer trains. At least east of Spofford where the line goes to Eagle Pass. And on to San Antonio and Houston.
I don't know the status beyond Spofford toward El Paso. Perhaps someone here can fill in the
blanks. Right now, you would be lucky to see 4 a day each way between El Paso and Spofford.
