If I remember right the alco switcher was A South Omaha Terminal loco. Used to switch the stockyards and industries in south Omaha. Connected UP, cb&q, and the MP among others. Is the big curve east or west of town? Love your pictures. Kansas is my other home state.

Many thanks!!
Yes it was. When they removed the old orange paint they got it down to where you could see the old lettering. That curve is just east of the east yard lead switch

Welcome!

Yesterday's activity was a "2 fer 1":

1: BNSF 6044 rolls west, with EGSX coal empties in tow.
2: After the BNSF train came to a stop, I turned around to see UP 7324 leading the eastbound MSITP thru town.
3: Once the UP train cleared, the BNSF train got back under way, DPU's were BNSF 5625 & 6195
