SP 8153 - Maplewood, MO

I dug this photograph out of the old negative files. Here we see Southern Pacific 8153, along with a second Southern Pacific unit, sitting along Greenwood Blvd., at Big Bend Boulevard, in Maplewood, Missouri. The train was waiting for clearance to proceed east on Union Pacific's Sedalia Subdivision.

At this time the Sedalia Subdivision ran all the way from Rock Creek Junction in Kansas City, Missouri. to Gratiot Tower (now called Gratiot Interlocking) in St. Louis, Missouri. Today, the segment of the rail line from Jefferson City, Missouri, to St. Louis has been renamed the Jefferson City Subdivision.  I'm not sure when the name change occurred, but a Union Pacific timetable I have from 1995, still lists this segment of the line as the Sedalia Subdivision.

Photo taken: April 1995, at Maplewood, Missouri.
