My son and I made a trek to see the UP 844 on its wb leg towards North Platte today. We did a little scouting and found locations east and west of Belvidere NE where the train was scheduled to make its first servicing stop of the day. Skies were unfortunately overcast and the temps hovered below 50. I cranked up the ISO far above where I normally shoot and to me, the shots are a bit grainy.

It's good to see the old girl out. I wasn't able to catch it this time so I'm glad you made the trip. Thanks for posting nice photos.
