Seaboard System 3236 leads a train west on UP's Sedalia Subdivision at Maplewood, MO.
SBD 3236 - Maplewood, MO

Here we see Seaboard System (SBD) 3236 leading a freight west on the Union Pacific's Sedalia Subdivision through Maplewood, Missouri. The train is passing through Control Point (CP) D007, which is just beyond the small bridge the train is crossing over under the engines. CP D007 is at milepost 6.9 on the subdivision.

Sedalia and Jefferson City Subdivisions

Today, the portion of the Sedalia Subdivision between St. Louis, Missouri, and Jefferson City, Missouri, has been renamed to the Jefferson City Subdivision. At the time this photograph was taken, the Sedalia Subdivision crossed the State of Missouri, between St. Louis and Kansas City. Now, only the portion of the line between Jefferson City and Kansas City is still named the Sedalia Subdivision. As of October 1995, this portion of the line was still named the Sedalia Subdivision, according to Union Pacific Timetable No. 2.

About the photo

This is an older photo I took on black and white negative film. To my knowledge this is the only photograph I have of a Seaboard System locomotive. I'm not sure if the locomotive had been patched (owned and renumbered by the Seabord's owner, CSX).

The negative was scanned on a Nikon Super Coolscan 9000 ED scanner, and post processing was done in Adobe Photoshop CC. Sharpening was done using Nik Software's Sharpener Pro 3.

Photo taken: Circa 1991. Maplewood, Missouri.
