UP 4856 and UP 7353 - St. Louis, MO

With the Gateway Arch and part of downtown St. Louis in the background, Union Pacific 4856 and Union Pacific 7353 lead a train westbound at 21st Street on Union Pacific's Jefferson City Subdivision. 

The train has just passed through Gratiot Interlocking, after having crossed over the Mississippi River on the MacArthur Bridge, and is heading toward Grand Interlocking. From here the train will travel across Missouri to the Kansas City area. UP 4856 is leading the train past Union Pacific's 12th Street Yard, which is sandwhiched between the Jefferson City Subdivision (on the south side) and TRRA's Merchants Subdivison (on the north side).
The building in the background, with the arch behind it, was an old warehouse that was painted to look like it had sculptures and stone work on it. It is currently a Sheraton Hotel.
