On The High Line
St. Louis, Missouri. October 22, 2005.
BNSF 5007 leads a freight train south on the TRRA's Merchants Subdivision's riverfront high line. The Mississippi River is out of site just to the right of this photograph. Southbound BNSF trains come off the BNSF's Hannibal Subdivision and onto the TRRA's Merchants Subdivision at North Market Interlocking in North St. Louis. From North Market BNSF trains roll south toward downtown St. Louis and then veer west on the Merchants Subdivision to Grand Interlocking. Grand Interlocking which is a few miles west of downtown St. Louis is where the BNSF trains leave the Merchants Subdivision and roll back onto the Hannibal Subdivision.
