    Located within the Memphis Terminal Division. Physical yard was located southwest of the downtown between West Olive Avenue to the north and South Parkway West on the south. It is bounded on the east by Louisiana Street and the west by Riverside Boulevard.

    SLSF Yardmaster's shared the building with the Illinois Central (IC), later in 1972 Illinois Central Gulf (ICG) Railroad, Missouri Pacific (MP) Railroad and St. Louis Southwestern (SSW) aka Cotton Belt Railway.

    Note the large sign with forearm, hand with extended finger pointing to the safety slogan concerning maximum switching speed.

    View looking north.

    Edit 1/14/2024: Added location address, subdivision and additional image narrative.
