CSX 7570 - TRRA Merchants Subdivision - St Louis - July 2008



CSX 7570 - TRRA Merchants Subdivision - St Louis - July 2008
CSXT 7570 - St. Louis, MO

CSX 7570 rolls south (away from the camera) on TRRA's Merchants Subdivision in North St. Louis. CSX 7570 and another locomotive were trying to make a quick run past the mini-Death Star in the background. I am not sure, but I believe the large dome is possibly for grain storage, at a trans-load facility along the Mississippi River.

CSX 7570 is a  General Electric built C40-8 model locomotive. The locomotive was built in 1989, for the CSX railroad.Since this photograph was taken, the locomotive has been sold off to GECX, a railroad leasing company, and is now GECX 7570.

Photograph taken: July 14, 2008, at St. Louis, Missouri.

    You missed this when you were in St. Louis. It's a couple of miles north of the Arch grounds.
