The East Approach
Union Pacific 4445 and Union Pacific 2934 lead a freight west on the east approach of the MacArthur Bridge, over Boismenue Avenue. Further east on Boismenue Avenue you can see part of the approach's curve, as it swings back around at Valley Junction, and beyond that is the yard tower at the Alton and Southern's Gateway Yard. UP 4445's train had come out of Gateway Yard.
