Remarks & Notes 
Earlier this week, I was turned onto this interesting switching operation in suburban KC by Zach Pumphery, and with free time at my disposal, I knew I HAD to get out to shoot them. This is Space Center Distribution's SW9 getting ready to start its day's work underground in Independence, MO. Space Center is an underground complex in a former limestone mine with a network of man-made caves for storage of products. The locomotive the former Missouri Pacific 9178, which was built in 6-1951. Eventually, it became 1240, before being retired by the UP in 1983.
