Y696 and UP 7240 next to the Dupo Yard tower - Dupo, IL.

Union Pacific (UP) Y696 works a switch job in UP's Dupo Yard in January 2005. In the distance is UP 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.
