Whoopee! It's 40 degrees! I put my shorts and sleeveless tee shirt on and headed out to Kennard, NE on the old CNW. 2 miles west on the westbound uphill (sometimes referred to as Marshall Hill, for the Marshall Nursery that was at the top) we find the 2755. This may be the ruling grade between Blair and Fremont. Back in Kennard for the 4 other trains. It was a gray, spotty shower kinda day but with sound recorder out, you could here the trains a couple of miles away. I didn't really have shorts on. But I did drive with the window open for bit. This last pic looks westbound and shows the subgrade for double track someday.
