On an elevated bridge that runs parallel to U.S. Highway 59, Brandon Gray and Ruben Zamora set a wooden railroad tie under the rails. Union Pacific Railroad crews are replacing dozens of older ties along the tracks that lead to the Coleto Creek Power Station near Fannin. The heatwave sweeping Texas made for some hot work. Unfortunately, Gray and Zamora won't see any relief from the weather anytime soon.
