Empty Coal Hopper Rail Cars Above The Flooding Mississippi River In St. Louis



June 20, 2008. St. Louis, Missouri.

Seen here passing under the Eads Bridge are empty coal cars on a southbound train that is rolling along on the TRRA's riverfront high line. At this time the Mississippi River was flooding the St. Louis riverfront. Photo © Tom Gatermann.

  2. Thanks, Shelly Gunderson​. The Eads Bridge is a beautiful bridge. The upper deck is for automobiles, while the lower deck carries light rail vehicles.
