  1. Roy Tankersly at the controls. Any ideas on location? Somewhere between St Louis and Newburg.

    Possibly Rolla? Cuba?

    It does look like the Hwy 19 overpass in Cuba--don't know what the road number would have been back then.

    Doesn't look like Rolla to me. Maybe Cuba as others have noted, but it doesn't really ring my bell as being Cuba. Went under that bridge many times when a kid and on up when we drove down to Dillard for a long weekend of fishing and r & r. The bridge underpass is tighter than this one in my memory.

    Enlarged it and the background under the bridge doesn't look like Cuba. I'm trying to think of any other underpasses where the RR is on a fill like that.

    My first thought was Cuba, but looks to me like the train is in a curve and that the stockcar is going across a viaduct itself. That shores it up in my mind, got to be Dixon.

    I can't decide what is by the stock car. I thought it was a building. Roy Tankersly was a Rolla Sub engineer if that is him running, so it would be strange for it to be Dixon. Too bad the focus is soft.
