A loaded coal train heading south, lead by Union Pacific 7187 and Union Pacific 7331, crosses over the Kaskaskia River on Union Pacific's Chester Subdivision. The subdivision crosses the river a few miles west of Ellis Grove, Illinois. The bridge is at approximately milepost 51.5 on the Chester Subdivision, just north of Gage Junction (milepost 52.0).
