MKG GP7 #103
South of Burkburnett, Texas in January, 1979, GP7 #103 is Northbound with freight destined for points beyond the Red River along the Northwest Branch. The backdrop for this photo is the Katy's largest single customer in the area: PPG. When the float glass plant opened in 1974 it gave the Katy quite a boost in the face of sagging seasonal traffic elsewhere along the branch.
