UP 844 NC 2002 and BNSF

Railroadforums.com is a free online Railroad Discussion Forum and Railroad Photo Gallery for railroaders, railfans, model railroaders and anyone else who is interested in railroads. We cover a wide variety of topics, including freight trains, passenger and commuter railroads, rail news and information, tourist railroads, railway museums and railroad history.


I covered a lot of ground today. I started at Summit in Omaha and ended the 844 chase with a flat tire in Columbus. Luckily the tire shop was across the street from where I got the flat. I could have ridden home on the donut spare but I wanted to go take some more pictures. Besides $30 for a tire and I didn't have to change it was OK. I'll try to get these in some chronological order.

Summit, Schuyler, Columbus

844 heads west into the Nebraska summer. The sun was bright and almost overhead most of the day. Deep blue sky.

After the flat was fixed I heard the Nebraska Central heading north at a rail burning 10 MPH
