I worked for Halliburton and lived in Fairfax 1954 to 1958 and remember the trains coming through every night around 10 oclock. You could tell when the train was coming becuase every dog in town would start barking. I think the turbo chargers hurt thier ears.My stepson Bengie Mason married the station agent's daughter, Sharon.
