    Please see this action photograph shot of SD-45 943 and sister near Prattville, OK.

    The photo caption indicates the train is a west bound freight under the US Highway 97 (aka US Highway 51 or West 113th Avenue) bridge on the north side of Prattville, OK. The photo is dated 8/27/1980.

    The train is on the Perry Subdivision in route to Enid. The highway overpass in the background bridge number 431.5. The engines are very near the Frisco station Shirk, MP Z 432.00. In addition to crossing over the railroad, the bridge crosses the Arkansas River to the north as the highway enters Sand Springs, OK. The train is just 7 miles outside Cherokee Yard at West Tulsa. Very inspirational, hail the good old days!

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks!

    Heres what the place looked like in October. Sorry for the BNSF train. It got in the way and ruined a good shot

    Love the variety of the SD-45s (my favorite diesel) - no gyralite but an L-shaped engineer's window on this one.

    Thanks, Mark...

    Best Regards,
