DPU on the UP Sedalia sub  Contributor's Pick!       
An empty UP coal train works west on the road's Sedalia subdivision with GE 7000 pushing in distributed power mode. The coal train is on the main while Amtrak 413 waits in the siding for it. The Sedalia sub is largely used for westbound UP freight while eastbounds normally operate on the parallel River Sub, located further north. Amtrak's St Louis-bound eastbounds have to dodge freights through the eight sidings on the 157 mile single-track portion to Jefferson City, which usually slows progress considerably. Today's train left KC on time and will arrive Jeff City 45 minutes late. This picture was shot out of the rear window of a Horizon coach.
