SD45 908 at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The train is westbound of the Chickasha Subdivision. It has just departed East Yard and crossed the North Canadian River. The roadway in front of the locomotives is South Santa Fe Street. Beyond the street the train will pass under the North/South Santa Fe Railroad mainline. Just to the west beyond the underpass is the joint Frisco/Rock Island Oklahoma City Union Depot.

The photographer is standing on the rise for the Santa Fe main tracks. This elevated grade separation was constructed to the east of the downtown business district in the early 1930s. Eight blocks North is the Santa Fe’s (now Amtrak) depot.

The view is looking northeast.

Special thanks to Mark Davidson.
