Illinois Central Gulf GP-10 is the lead unit as the trio switches cars from a siding. Location is Summit Yard in Clarksville, TN. A January ice storm has covered the landscape, but the train still must get through. This was the world out my back gate when I was growing up. Railroad is gone and has been replaced by a street. Photo taken with a Kodak 127 camera is a little out of focus. But, a little out of focus is better than no photo at all.
