Tank cars - Columbia, IL

A string of tank cars roll north on a Union Pacific train on the Chester Subdivision. In the distance is the Jefferson Barracks Bridge, which carries Interstate 255 over the Mississippi River between South St. Louis County, Missouri, and Columbia, Illinois. Locally the bridge is called the JB Bridge. The bridge is named after Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, which is located in Missouri, atop the river bluffs, to the north (on the right side) of the bridge in the distance.
