"This is a view from East St. Louis, Illinois, where the railroad tracks run along the Mississippi. Our area is a big freight junction where several carriers' lines cross. They have a cooperative to haul the freight cars from yard to yard, the Terminal Railroad Association. I love the name, like it's the last one ever. It sounds as if the industry has a terrible disease: after this locomotive passes, the railroad will be dead."
