Live Wire

The rear end of a light rail train is just about to vanish from sight in this view taken from the overpass along Natural Bridge Rd. near the UM-St. Louis South station.  The age of the overpass wall indicates that this part of MetroLink runs along a much older transportation corridor, a former Wabash Railroad route.  A danger sign warns pedestrians of the electric current below.  

Lambert Airport lies far beyond the boundaries of St. Louis, but the city operates the facility.  There are a bewildering number of small municipalities with irregular boundaries in this part of St. Louis County.  The University of Missouri-St. Louis is also beyond the limits of center city, but carries a St. Louis street address.
