I recently got my first DSLR, so I headed down to my regular spot in Ashland, Nebraska to try it out. I found a Canadian Pacific AC4400CW on trailing on what I assume was an oil train. It was definitely a pleasant surprise. From what I heard it was siting there for most of the day. I feel bad for its crew.

The Omaha Posse picks up another member. Congratulations on the new dSLR and I hope to see many more of your photos here. I like the pattern of the bare branches above the two orange units in photo #2.

I went down to Ashland today to see if there was anything going on. I sat around for half an hour while this crew wrapped up doing trackwork, and then a westbound came through a little bit later.

I headed down to Ashland for a little bit yesterday, but first I stopped in Gretna to catch the late Amtrak 6. It had a friendly engineer who gave me a nice little horn show as he flew by.

Now, at Ashland, a horribly backlit train crawled by with a short string of cars loaded with large rocks. I wonder if they’ll be dumped by the tracks along the Platte River around Louisville or somewhere else.

Finally, a SOO Line hopper and CP 8001 roll up the east side of the wye on the tail end of a freshly re-crewed tank train.
