Crossing the Meramec River

Leading an empty coal train west over the Meramec River is Union Pacific 7142. The train, most likely, was heading back to Wyoming to reload in the Power River Coal Basin area.

While, I was on the wrong side of the bridge to get the best light, I'm still fairly happy with this shot. This was taken with an older Canon 20D. Sometimes, given the age of that camera, it amazes me what it could pull off.
