    The Clergy and Railroads!?! An article from across the pond!

    Very interesting Roger. I have long noted a connection with railroads by church organists also. And friend of mine left the clergy to pursue a career with the BN railroad.

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    3 from Saturday. Across the cornfield is the DPU's of a BNSF train west of Oreapolis. A view down a creek it just crossed 2 seconds before I stopped. And a UP train at 14th St in Omaha waiting to go west. The scrap steel gons and the front lead me to believe this is a train bound for Columbus...

    Chasing some train(s) in Council Bluffs. One today KCS 4621 AC4400CW (prototype for an Athearn model) delivering grain cars and then moving over to the IAIS. And the captive 4-6-0 CB&Q 915 at the Railswest Museum.

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    Took a ride to the east today. Heard Iowa Interstate on the scanner. Drove out to a place called Peter. This is where the Chicago Great Western and the Rock Island diverged after the 1952 cutoff to Atlantic was built. RI had trackage rights on the CGW. When the CGW was removed(along the road to...

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    My original thought was to go to Kennard to see what was happening. The scanner called a warrant for GTW 5931 out of Council Bluffs. Caught him just north of the Beno's crossing(named for a Council Bluffs Department store owner who lived near there, I think). Running on the adjacent track was a...

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    The train with the BNSF 25th anniversary loco(see the "Heads UP" post) had about 6 locos on it. It stopped with some behind trees. Here are two in sight. I like them because of the low numbers.
