MP 3006
Title:  MP 3006
Description:  A Missouri Pacific freight rolls through Valmeyer, IL when it was still there. Mississippi River flooding inundated the town in 1993, virtually destroying it. When the flood waters returned in 1995, the town was re-located to higher ground nearby -- but away from the MP/UP mainline.

Title:  MP YNL
Description:  Missouri Pacific train YNL heads east over the New Orleans Public Belt towards its destination at the Louisville & Nashville's Gentilly Yard. YNL was a "designated chemical train" and almost all of its cars were either tank cars or covered hoppers. The locomotives are SD40's 3006 and 3045 with GP50 3516. At the location, between the Mississippi River levee on the left and Leake Avenue on the right, there were two NOPB tracks and two ICG tracks. In the distance on the right, a covered hopper is on the NOPB-New Orleans Sewerage & Water Board interchange.
