BNSF 856 Entering the Gooseneck

May 2004. Kansas City, Missouri.

BNSF 856 leads a train off the Hannibal Bridge and into the Gooseneck, as another train heads north out of the Gooseneck and onto the Hannibal Bridge.

The old railroad bridge you see here was moved and now serves as the pedestrian bridge by Kansas City Union Station. From information I have found online this bridge was know as the Pencoyd Bridge and was part of the Kansas City Suburban Belt Railroad.

The moving of the bridge from this location to Kansas City Union Station was featured in Mega Movers - Massive Bridges (Season One, Episode 12) on the History Channel.

The original image was captured on Kodak Ektachrome slide film.
