This looks like a meat train — maybe No 192? eastbound across a bridge somewhere in western Iowa, I think. Does anyone else recognize the bridge? The F units had the striping and were nice and shiny, so this must have been around 1950.

Stephen Karlson This is the Kate Shelley bridge, now being preserved as an engineering landmark. Union Pacific put in a new bridge capable of handling two stack trains on it at speed, using parts from the Milwaukee Road bridge downriver.
