    Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis


    (T.R.R.A.)



    T.R.R.A. All Time Roster




    T.R.R.A. Historical and Technical Society, Inc.

    All-Time Diesel Roster


    This is the most complete roster I could find, it is however lacking some information due to the fact that the T.R.R.A. now rosters a sizable fleet of second hand six-axle power.


    This includes:

    TRRA #1751 .......... EMD SD7R

    TRRA #2204 .......... EMD GP38

    TRRA #2205 .......... 4-axle road slug

    TRRA #2206 .......... 6-axle road slug

    TRRA #3001 .......... EMD SD40T-2

    TRRA #3002 .......... EMD SD40-3 (SD45 carbody)

    TRRA #3003 .......... EMD SD40R

    TRRA #3004 .......... EMD SD40-3 (SD45 carbody)

    TRRA #3005 .......... EMD SD40T-2



    NOTE:
    Most of the 2nd Gen. six-axle units are of Southern Pacific heritage, while the SD7 (rebuilt by MRS Shops with a low short hood) is a former Pennsylvania RR locomotive.

    I'd like to thank Keith Belk and Scott Ikemeyer for compiling this data for St. Louis Railfanning.

    Info on the Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis:

    The T.R.R.A. was created in 1889, in order to create a secure method of efficiently interchanging passenger and freight traffic over the Mississippi River. Not to mention, operate and maintain St. Louis' massive Union Station, which included Railway Express Agency (REA) switching duties. The ORIGINAL railroads with ownership in the T.R.R.A. were the Missouri Pacific, St. Louis, Iron Mountain & Southern, Wabash Railroad, the Ohio & Mississippi Ry., the Louisville & Nashville, and the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis Ry.
    The railroads with ownership in T.R.R.A. today include:
    • Union Pacific (UP)
    • BNSF Railway (BNSF)
    • CSX Transportation (CSXT)
    • Canadian National (CN) - Formerly Illinois Central (IC)
    • Norfolk Southern (NS)

    The T.R.R.A. owns and dispatches the MacArthur Bridge, the Merchants Bridge, the "High Line" (that runs under the Arch) which connects the Merchants Bridge, the BNSF Hannibal Sub, and NS's old Wabash line to the yard in downtown St. Louis, their hump yard in Madison, IL, a line that connects their Madison yard to the A&S Gateway Yard in E. St. Louis by way of Valley Jct., and several other smaller branches and operations.
    The T.R.R.A. runs regular transfers to the Manufacturers Railway Co. at their "Brewery Yard", to the Alton & Southern at their Gateway Yard, to the KCS at their former Gateway Western yard in E. St. Louis, IL, and occasionally to the Union Pacific at their Dupo Yard in Dupo, IL.
