Other Information

UP Chester Sub double track main runs north south.  Good wide open photos from the Flinton Station Rd crossing.  The ex-MoPac connecting track running east-west from the UP main to the east across the Kaskaskia River has long been torn out.  The track from the UP main to the west is still intact and serves (served?) a coal unloading facility on the Mississippi River at Kellog.  The track is owned by the Consolidated Coal Company and usually has engines stored at the end of Flinton Station Rd.
