Time to check things out

UP engineer (appears to be Lynn Nystrom) disembarking from UP844 shortly after arrival at Coffeyville on April 24, 2010.
Lynn Nystrom, one of the mainstays of the UP steam program passed away of a massive coronary May 5th. A sad day for the UP steam crew.

I am so sorry to hear that. I spent some time talking to him at Parsons, and he was a nice gentleman. I got him to autograph two "covers" as souvenirs... RIP
Yes, RIP. Lynn will be missed by all who knew him and worked with him. I had the privalige of being his pilot west out of Elko NV on April 15th 2009.
