    Omaha Posse 2021

    It’s a shame to see the switcher and that CBQ RPO going to heck. I think FEVR 361 is a US Army veteran. Did you forget to bring an empty coffee cup?

    Where is the Omaha Posse?

    The 1974 picture shows the low bridge that destroyed countless rental trucks. Also a number of people died by hitting the center post at high rates of speed at night. That bridge was not missed by the people of Ralston.

    UP 9031 West from Council Bluffs

    Fantastic! I've stood on the same ground as the camera man in many of the council Bluffs shots, except it was in the later 60's. Most of those locations were familiar, just wish I had been old enough to see a 9000. Rick Z
