Closeup of CNW SD40-2 6840 leading a detouring ATSF manifest eastbound near Woodbine, IA on a July 1993 evening. Severe flooding in the midwest had closed down the Santa Fe transcon and trains were being detoured to the Overland Route. After the merger with Union Pacific, the 6840 became the UP 3021.
