578 works the North La Crosse yard

578 works the (North La Crosse) yard in mid-June, 1972, just west of the (now vanished) bridge that used to carry the CB&Q’s passenger main into downtown La Crosse. There used to be a little section house just to the left of this photo, but that, as well as almost everything else in this photo, is gone. 578 outlived the CB&Q bridge, outlived the section house, but eventually met the breakers 10 years ago.
