Jerry Pacheco can hardly contain his enthusiasm as he provides a “windshield tour” of the Santa Teresa Logistics Park just north of the Santa Teresa Port of Entry.
“Now it’s happening,” he says repeatedly. The enthusiasm may have drawn extra energy from Pacheco’s passenger this columnist being a fellow Santa Teresa true believer.

SUNLAND PARK – Santa Teresa “will become a key inland port in the United States” when Union Pacific Railroad’s massive $500 million refueling and intermodal yard is completed there in five years, according to Zoe Richmond, UP’s director of public affairs for Arizona and New Mexico.
“Think of it as a chicken coop for trains,” Richmond said.
It will be a major refueling, crew change, switch yard and intermodal ramp for UP’s busy Sunset Corridor, from Los Angeles-Long Beach through to Chicago and across the nation.

With a stroke of a pen, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez on Tuesday started the wheels rolling for a proposed $400 million Union Pacific rail facility in Santa Teresa.
Martinez, appearing in a Santa Teresa warehouse filled with politicians and area business people, signed recently passed state legislation exempting Union Pacific from paying locomotive fuel tax so the railroad company will develop the new facility.
The locomotive fueling station and intermodal freight yard are expected to create 3,000 jobs during four years of construction and bring 600 permanent jobs, Union Pacific officials have said.
