GP35 713 at Springfield West Yard in February 1971.
Location is Springfield, Missouri.
The photo was taken at the Springfield Kansas Avenue or West Yard. The locomotives are parked east of the Springfield Diesel Shop on the diesel pocket track. This track is east of the Kansas Avenue overpass and northeast of the Mechanical Department’s service tracks area. The pocket track is used for longer term storage of locomotives until they can be scheduled for work time, space, materials and manpower in the shop.
The track and turnout in the foreground lead to the east end of the service tracks area (diverging route) and further west the diesel shop (through route). The track beyond the locomotive’s pilot is the lead to the west shops area, Benwood Yard and Clinton Subdivision.
View is looking north.
