Thread: Just South Of Council Bluffs IA

    Default Just South Of Council Bluffs IA

    The BNSF Council Bluffs Sub isn't the busiest line around the area, so when I noticed a NB train from my SB travel in I-29, I took the next available exit and went after a suitable place to grab a shot or two.

    Always a catch to see something north of PJ. Great catch, Ed!

    Nice work Ed! Like you said, not the busiest, but at least they seem to run at decent hours on that line.

    Is that a secondary mainline? The roadbed and rail don't look very heavy duty.

    Yes. Usually only sees local traffic, but sometimes when the Creston sub is busy they will run empty coal trains over the line and through Omaha back down to Ashland.

    The KCS grain trains come up that line also. Ah for the day when the Zephyrs went there every morning.
