Union Pacific
Kansas City, Kansas
May 30, 1975

Looking east from James Street towards Kansas City, Kansas, the Union Pacific's bridge over the Kansas River is at left and the Missouri Pacific's at right. The MP will turn north after the bridge at Kaw Tower to reach its small Cypress Yard before joining another MP line to form the line to Pueblo. The Union Pacific's Armstrong, Armourdale and 18th Street Yards are directly ahead, after which the UP will head west to Denver via its Kansas Pacific line. The photographer is basically standing on the Missouri/Kansas state line here.
