UP 5877 Roll Through A Hole in the Flood Wall At Modoc, IL.

February 18, 2012. Modoc, Illinois.

Union Pacific 5877 is the distributed power unit (DPU) on an empty coal train that is leaving a coal trans-load facility along the Mississippi River, near Modoc, Illinois. The train was backing out of the loading facility to a small storage yard just outside of the flood wall. A railroad worker was on the ground flagging the crossing as the train rolled through the opening in the flood wall.
