Few More from the past several Days! I went out to Kearney Thursday and Friday to see the Sandhill Cranes. Shot a few trains too!

1. Quick one from the Helicopter in Lincoln, NE.

2. Thursday on the Triple Track Near Gibbon, NE


4. Right where the Triple Track Starts near Gibbon, NE

5. This next one was a total surprise and 100% luck. We were photographing Sandhill Cranes near Doniphin, NE when a truck pulled up next to use and told us there was a Whooping Crane near Prosser, NE. We headed over there, it was about 10 miles away. When we got close to Prosser, I saw a train coming, but the third locomotive was blue. I needed to turn around anyway so we crossed the tracks and pulled over and waited, it was a Conrail! First one I have ever seen and it was with a NS! We also found the Whooping Crane, first one of those I have ever seen too!!!

6. Crossing the Platte River heading towards KC on the Marrysville Sub.

7. Next day in Lincoln, NE

8. Ashland, NE

9. Ashland, NE

10. Ashland, NE

11. Ashland, NE
