Absolutely

Beautiful image.

42nd Street again?

My guess is that this was taken from the 42nd Street bridge, possibly near the south end of it, looking west. Argentine Yard is still there in Kansas City, KS... see Refrigerated Freight, another Delano shot on Shorpy, for more info. These days, most of the freight probably travels *from* the West Coast, though.
