Remarks & Notes 
On a lesser traveled BN route (that I believe no longer exists), this freight is passing Wood River tower. I think the train is on NS (ex-IT/SL&A) rails at this point, and is moving toward Alton Junction, where it will curve left to cross the Mississippi and head for home rails (ex-CB&Q) at West Alton. Not sure who owned bridge. Lots of this trackage has been removed.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
