The 4014, as long it was the beautiful UP passenger cars. Amtrak coaches would be fine too as long as I can hear the whistle. If you couldn't hear the locomotive it wouldn't matter what is pulling the train. Tom's opinion #38476-3.
4 from the Sandhills of western Nebraska. Much interesting scenery, goal was not railroad photography however so I grabbed only a few. Station and turntable at Bridgeport and a UP coal skirting the edge of Lake McConaughy. Distant shot is from high on a hill near Chimney Rock.


Nice to see the 4014 at MP 0. Good job Ed. I got this image near the top of Arcadia Hill which is on the Mississippi Missouri River Divide in Iowa. I was looking for a hill where the 4014 would make some chugging sounds. Small chugs on .7%, but alas with a large loco and only a few cars that is all we can hope for. Thought about going this morning but I see by the tweets he didn't pass 72nd St till after 11. He was supposed to be in Fremont at 9:30. Don't know what happened.


I caught the Big Boy near 156th in Omaha and then just east of Fremont. I believe UP changed the schedule to 4014 reaching Fremont around 11:30 at some point late yesterday. There was some MOW work going on west of Valley, but I don’t think it would’ve affected 4014’s schedule much. I guess the reason for the delay will remain a mystery.

Great shots from all of you. It is nice when there is enough "good" photographers chasing to get a well rounded experience. Bill, to answer your question the other tracks in the long view photo are BNSF. There is a railroad on either side of the North Platte River in this part of Nebraska.
