C&NW RS3 #1555 working a small yard somewhere ... I shot this on Aug. 11, 1969, but location not noted.

Cottonwood tree, grain towers in distance, UP cars....Somewhere around Fremont Nebraska?

I'm going to guess Mankato, MN based on the track layout and sand tower.

I'm thinking especially with the Alco Lander WY.

I know I was not near Lander, Wy. I was somewhere in the Midwest, on a trip from Colorado, to shoot pictures in the Twin Cities.

Here is a picture near the Mankato engine facility in 2007. About 80 miles southwest of the Twin Cities.

I doubt the 1555 would have worked as far west as Lander or Fremont, but it could have happened.

I'll bet your Alco RS3 was in or near the Twin Cities.

Definitely not East Minneapolis, West Minneapolis, or the yard on the river flats near Chestnut Street. Could possibly be East St Paul.

I agree -- Mankato MN and that's a cement plant on the horizen
