    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    Hi Bill, The Omaha World Herald reports today, March 30, that record numbers of cranes are roosting along the Platte this year. This is the 7th week of the migration and so far it is a record breaking 659,870 birds. The number doubled since last week.

    I like your #20 Meet picture. BNSF looks out of place there. Thanks Allan.

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    That's bad news, but I imagine more will be going through Council Bluffs. I know that Pacific Junction was being evacuated, but are the tracks high enough to keep traffic moving?

    The blue water and sand seem so nice. The first shot of 4056 starting around the curve is my favorite. Your water looks so soft. I don't think it would support an ice fishing hut at all.

    Oak creek power plant is south of Milwaukee Wisconsin. I don’t know how to read slowly.

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    Greunther road is the name of the street. If the Oak Creek Plant is the pallet manufacturer then that is Fairview Road.

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    No Railroad, just stations. CB&Q brick passenger depot at Clarinda, Iowa. CB&Q Wooden Freight house. The Q ran a line south from the main at Villisca, Iowa to Clarinda. It then divided with one line going southwest to Tarkio and Corning Missouri. The other went south through Burlington...

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    On the way home we paced 5081 and then stopped at Ashland to watch it and the mid train engines and the DPU pass. Headlight was dimmed as it went by and a westbound empty hopper showed up right away.

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    We saw 7 trains, 5 manifest and 2 empty hopper on the way down hwy 6. At the BNSF near 14th St in Lincoln, an eastbound coal and 2 trains on the siding waiting to get in the yards. And then near the Amtrak station there was a train with 4 engines. Peeking from between 2 is the 1920 in BN green...

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    The weather man predicted ice and snow and high winds at noon. So what should we do this morning? Let’s drive 50 miles to our favorite train store in Lincoln(Randy’s Roundhouse, who is not responsible for any comments made here). I’ll bet we can be back to Omaha before the world ends. Got there...

    Very nice, Ed. Orep is still a good place to photo.

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    Many forgot over the summer. It was amazing the number of accidents and generally stupid driving. What else could I do but photo trains?

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    Looks like fall is over in the Omaha area. After driving my wife to work, hour and 5 minutes for 14 miles, I ventured to Council Bluffs. While Omaha was at a standstill on the interstate highways, CB was moving along and the trains were running. UP at 2nd avenue with the red signal where the...

    I really like the first photo in #242. Having the boats up high and the train down low makes you wonder "why are the boats up there?" Good job! Also the Sounder appears to be plowing through the bushes. Thank you, son of Bill. Rick Zorko

    Here are a few from a different angle, at bridge level. Eastbounds this time of year will get no favorable sun. And one from Dunlap.
