UP: Stepping up train speed through Texas town


Beginning Oct. 28, Union Pacific Railroad plans to raise train speeds through Odessa, Texas, from 25 mph to 60 mph by increasing speed 5 mph each week until Dec. 9.


Track conditions had limited trains to 25 mph through Odessa, but UP recently improved the line, according to a prepared statement.


During the past year, UP similarly raised train speeds through several communities following crossing-signal and track modifications.
