On Tuesday March 9th, 1999, the HSSBMEM1-09A (Silsbee to Memphis) accelerates across fifth street at the east (west on the time table) end of Silsbee yard.  About 100 feet in front of the train is the swich for either the Longview to the left, or Silsbee subdivision to the right.  This train will take the swich to the left, and reach Longview by early Wednesday morning, and be re-crewed for the trip to Memphis.  Unusual is the second generation Santa Fe cabless booster unit riding second in the consist.
