Great photos Brad! Could you tell if there would need to be quite a bit of work on the CN northeast of town? Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for taking the helecopter ride. Great photos. Great looking helicopter. Shows why we were not able to get railcars to north Omah this week. We had to string a hose about 200 feet across the field/swamp to get material to run our facility. ground water is still coming under the parking lot.
