The Illinois Central Railroad connected Chicago in the North with New Orleans and Mobile, Alabama in the South and with Omaha to the West. Hill's details were as accurate with landmarks along the line as they were with the engines themselves. The truss bridge depicted here is the Cairo Bridge, which spans the Ohio River between Illinois and Kentucky.
