I came up from the south hoping for a train at one of the old wooden bridges. "Missed it by that much" as Maxwell Smart used to say. Pile driving at Leshara so no trains the rest of the day. 2342 was back in Fremont by the time I got there. All I saw was the orange blur fade into the horizon. Did see the 4188 of the UP at Yutan. And a couple of standing UP trains. And the CBR 901 tucked in behind the grain elevator at Fremont. Looks like it's Ex TNO 245, SP 3357.
Take me to the bridge next week. I don’t know where that is.

So, I've been trying to get a picture of a north bound train at this old wooden bridge at MP 17 on the Sioux City Line. I waited 4 hours today. Actually I snuck away to Fremont for a bit because MOW was working on the bridge at Leshara again. But at 2:55 a NB came with 2 CN loco in the consist. I chased it to Elk where it stopped to meet a SB that was north of Fremont. But time for dinner so I didn't wait. It is about a 50 mile round trip to MP 17 from my house. The 2 UP trains were stopped for a crew change and the BNSF 2342 was do some switching in Fremont. Great day, not too hot or humid. A couple of different views because I can't decide which ones I like yet. These are taken with the 85mm prime lens and one one click of sharpening in the Nikon NX program. Manual 1/1200 @f8 ISO 1000. Anybody know what K stands for in the speed limit sign?

I should include a picture of the "Longbranch" Saloon in downtown Leshara, NE. In case you are ever thirsty while chasing trains on the Sioux City Line

1st 4264 is my favorite. Too bad you had to wait so long.
I washed windows this morning. At least my wife is happy.

Picture was taken about 1pm. When I came back through town at 3 there were 2 motorcycles and 2 guys sitting under the overhang. Probably not still a saloon.

Massive fires in the west, hurricanes in the south, civil unrest everywhere, a global pandemic and now this. They are removing the searchlight signals from the Louisville line of the BNSF(ex CB&Q). Picture at South Bend, NE.

Quick trip today finds a UP eastbound at Valley, NE. I heard something on Lincoln Sub over the radio but could not determine it's location and direction. Forecast for this weekend 92 degrees on Sat, 101 on Sunday, 84 on Monday, 52 and Rain on Tuesday. You gotta love Nebraska weather.

Coming home from northern Minn I stopped at Wadena, Minn for 2 trains, one EB(4602) and one WB(6256), and a look at the depot which is now used for the Chamber of Commerce. This is the former Northern Pacific to the PNW
