UP train CATIM9 11 heads south on 12/16/2007 as the Sun sets near the 'blink and you miss it' metropolis of Maeystown, IL. You can see their majestic skyscraper lined skyline in the background. The engine hear is a former Southern Pacific, assigned to the lowly but important spot on the rear end of the train in DPU service. It's destination of Cora, IL is about 40 miles ahead, where the coal will be dumped onto the Mississippi River for distribution to various locations via barge.
