Into the Curve

October 18, 2005. Maplewood, Missouri.

Autorack cars on a westbound Union Pacific train enter the curve along Greenwood Blvd., near the Sutton Blvd. crossing. In the distane one of the signals can be seen for the crossovers at Control Point D007 (mile post 6.9) on the Jefferson City Subdivision.

  1. Fabulous shot! The vantage point you took is awesome giving the strong curves on both the train and the tracks their prominence!

  2. Love this! Great look in monochrome and composition!

  3. Thank you very much, Ann Kennedy. I really like how the tops of the tracks stand out in the shadow of the train.

    Thanks a lot, Shelly Gunderson. The image gained a lot more pop once I converted it to B&W.
