UP 9539 at BB Road - Chester Subdivision - March 2006

UP 9539 leads a train at BB Road on the Chester Subdivision.
UP 9539 - Columbia, IL

Union Pacific (UP) 9539 rolls north on Union Pacific's Chester Subdivision through the BB Road crossing. The crossing is just north and west of Interstate 255 (the highway crosses over and then turns and runs almost parallel to the tracks), and to the south of Union Pacific's Dupo Yard. At the same spot where I-255 crosses the Chester Subdivision, to the south, is Control Point D009 (CPD009), which is commonly referred to as ICG. At one time an Illinois Central rail line crosses the subdivision there.
