UP 4445 and UP 2934 - MacArthur Bridge East Approach

UP 4445 and UP 2934 - MacArthur Bridge East Approach
UP 4445 and UP 2934 - East St. Louis, IL

Union Pacific 4445 and Union Pacific 2934 lead a manifest freight train west on the east approach of the MacArthur Bridge. The train's locomotives are passing over Boismenue Avenue, in East St. Louis, Illinois. Further east down Boismenue Avenue you can see part of the approach's curve, as it swings back around at Valley Junction. There are actually two approaches back at Valley Junction that lead to the east approach.  This train is using the approach out of the Alton and Southern's Gateway Yard. The yard's control tower is in the distance, behind the curved approach.
