Amtrak in the Distance

The location of this photo -- on the Illinois exit from the Eads Bridge -- is similar to that of the previous scene in this series; but the picture was taken from the restored upper roadway.  Vehicular and pedestrian traffic descend in this view, and MetroLink rises, briefly, toward central East St. Louis, visible in the background. 

Part of an Amtrak train appears to the right.  Train schedules disclose no regular service along this route, so a specific identification remains a mystery.

The Casino Queen Hotel and Casino is strategically located near the MetroLink station here at East Riverfront, and portions of its massive parking lot and RV park are visible toward the lower right.
