Its been way too long since I have posted any photos, but I actually made it out to the tracks with my camera 3 times since Thanksgiving!

First off Black Friday:

1. BNSF Bayard Train in the foreground, IAIS CBBI in the background. BNSF has just returned and waiting a crew to take it back to Omaha, IAIS is just departing town.

11. The Prize of the set!!! My wife actually took this one... We were driving down the road and I saw the IAIS BICB rounding the corner so I put the camera in her lap and said quick, take a photo. I'd say she did good!

Today 12/4/2016:

12. Downtown Omaha. Not quite sure what local this is, but it backed up out of Gibson with a caboose in the lead and after it cleared the switch it pulled forward and eventually went to Council Bluffs.

13. Downtown Omaha. Same train, showing an older GE here.

14. Downtown Omaha. In this shot you will see the same BNSF trian on the right side of the photo, it waited for this UP train to clear before it could head over to Council Bluffs.

16. A pair of UP SD40-2 that have been floating around Council Bluffs lately. This is in the old CNW yard in North Council Bluffs. There is another 17XX SD40-2 down in the other UP Yard too.

Nice shots, especially the one your wife took. Good to see that old GE unit, we don't seem to get them out here.

All of the snow shots are really nice. Yeah, the one your wife took is excellent. Where was that one taken?
You have a good mix of older power. BN 3111 sure has been around a long time and it looks it.

Thanks! Yeah, I always like the older power. Bonus when you can find it on a train.

Thanks! That's right off the bridge on Harry Langdon Boulevard. She was in the passenger seat, there were no cars coming so I just pulled over as far as I could and she snapped the photo. luckily I had just taken another photo so the camera was all setup and ready.

Its always great what you can find in Gibson Yard. They still seem to get Blue and Yellow Santa Fe locomotives too!
