SW9s 313 and 312, GP35 706 and GP38-2 428 at St. Louis, Missouri in October 1978.
This photograph was taken on the north side of Lindenwood Yard. This late afternoon shot is of the Mechanical Department’s service tracks area east of the Lindenwood Diesel Shop. In silhouette on the right of the image is the east wall of the shop.
Two additional locomotives can be identified in this view. The locomotive in front of SW9 312, in mandarin orange and white paint is NW2 257. On the same track as but to the west of Frisco GP38-2 428 is Union Pacific (UP) U30C 2815.
The view is looking to the southwest.
Special thanks to Mark Davidson.

GP38-2 428 and GP35 715 at Tulsa, Oklahoma in May 1980. The third unit is unidentified (Trackside Slides).
The train is eastbound and has just crossed the Arkansas River. Cherokee Yard is on the West side of the river. The rails in the background are Sand Springs Railways Yard and a little further west SSR interchanges with SLSF. SSR still exists today. The refineries in the background are still operational.
The area still generally looks the same today as it did in 1980.
