Santa Fe R.R. yards, Argentine, Kansas

titel continues:... Argentine yard is at Kansas City, Kansas

When I zoomed in on this image to touch up some small scratches, I realized that this image is the result of a significant time exposure of the film.  The squiggly white line is probably the path of a railroad line worker as he walks through the yard, swinging his lantern.  This image is a closer view of the right side of the image above.
