Union Pacific 2979 (an EMD SD40-2) and an unknown Norfolk Southern unit lead a trailer train south at mile post 10 on Union Pacific's Chester Subdivision.In the background, the train i spassing under Interstate 255. The train would have continued on the Chester Subdivision down into Southern Illinois, where it would have crossed over the Mississippi River into Missouri, at Thebes, IL. From there it would then traveled south into Arkansas, and most likely on toward Texas. Though, it could also have headed toward the Memphis, Tennessee area.
The image was scanned from a Kodak Ektachrome slide on a Nikon Coolscan 9000 ED film scanner. The file was scanned as a Nikon NEF (RAW) file, and then post processing was done in Adobe Camera RAW and Photoshop.
