Have any members of the Omaha Posse recently been to Plattsmouth to photograph that new bridge? Is it completed and operational? Was its construction "inspired" by an increase in coal trains?

Passed by it going to and returning from a recent trip to OK, they're still working it.

Here are some grab shots taken last Friday. It looks like they have probably 100-200' ofconcrete deck/curb left to pour, then install side guard rails for MOW folks. After that, my guess would be to start laying track.
