A few shots from today on our quest to document the UP donation move. We waited at the north end of the former CNW yard in Council Bluffs IA for the train, which had a previously posted 8am departure. Today's shots are of a manifest train as it passed our location. The rings on the bulkhead flat are the inter-connecting rings for wind turbine towers. The last two shots are a couple of grabs of a Schnabel car on that same train.
We left the area around 2:15 and the donation special still had not departed it's tied down location--oh well!
