Norfolk Southern 8925 and Union Pacific 9765 are on the point of a manifest train that is making its way through the Alton & Southern's Gateway Yard, with the downtown St. Louis' skyline in the background.

Gateway Yard is one of two hump and classification yards in the St. Louis area. The other hump yard is the TRRA's Madison Yard, located in Madison, IL an Venice, IL. The Gateway Yard's western end is at Valley Junction in East. St. Louis, IL., while the eastern end of the yard is in Alorton, IL. In 1968, the Missouri Pacific and the Chicago & North Western railroads purchased the Alton & Southern and operated the railroad jointly. Today, the Alton & Southern is owned by the Union Pacific Railroad, which now owns both the Missouri Pacific and Chicago & North Western railroads.
