Y696 and UP 7240 - Dupo, IL

Union Pacific Y696 works a switch job in Union Pacific's Dupo Yard in January 2005. In the distance is Union Pacific 7240, on the point of a southbound train that was being re-crewed. Once the train has a new crew it will head south on UP's Chester Subdivision. Dupo Yard is Union Pacific's intermodal facility for the St. Louis area.
