UP 8237 - St. Louis, MO

Union Pacific 8237 leads an empty coal drag south on the TRRA Merchants Subdivision, along first street in the old warehouse district north of the downtown river front. UP 8237 and its train would continue south from here passing under the Gateway Arch grounds, and then would turn and head west through Gratiot Interlocking. At Gratiot Interlocking, the train would either get onto the Union Pacific Jefferson City Subdivision, or continue west on the Merchants Subdivision to Grand Interlocking, where the train would then get onto the UP Jefferson City Subdivision.

On the right of the photograph you can see a portion of the old Cotton Belt freight depot, which has been unused and abandoned for decades.
