Happy 2nd month of the New Year!!! Going to start a fresh thread for the Omaha Posse. Feel free to add anytime. Trip to Fremont and Valley today to test some sound recording equipment. BNSF was switching the south end. UP 819 was dropping cars at the BNSF transfer on the west end and had to wait for the southbound BNSF 4286 oilcan train. A UP 2701 headed east through Valley. A stop at Valley DQ and one train at Waterloo with this R&N hopper bringing up the rear. The GP 30 5001 is one of 2 produced by GMD, used to be CP 8201 according to my source.

A bit of cabin fever was relieved by a trip to Ashland on Friday the 5th. around Lunch time a KCS train was headed west and then Tom's Fremont engines brought some cars to the Ashland yard.

For some reason I have to go out at least once when it's cold. -14 degrees this morning. -1 at noon so I went out to warm the car up. Drove out to Valley NE and a GP 38 819 was sitting by the crossing. I saw this one in Fremont last week. Drove to Fremont, it was devoid of trains except for a standing train just east of town. Long train with DPU's in middle.

Out for lunch today. The No Omaha yard at Seward St had some geeps and some a coal train loco and a place where tracks used to go. A train passed the Amtrak station downtown with WP hopper while we had a socially distanced lunch in our cars. It was 28 degrees, time to open the windows after -20 last week. Old baggage cart is probably CB&Q.

30 degrees on the way to 44 today. Another 4 or 5 inches of wet snow yesterday. A visit to Fremont ,NE finds the BNSF local kicking cars on the west end and a standing train in Valley, NE. Orange looks good in the snow.
