UP 8027
Title:  UP 8027
Description:  UP 8027 leads a westbound manifest through Missouri Valley as a coal train comes off the east leg of the wye. Most eastbound traffic operates via Council Bluffs and thence compass north to Missouri Valley, where the line heads northeastward to follow the Boyer River valley toward Dennison. Westbound traffic operates via Blair, NE on a shorter route to Fremont, NE that bypasses Council Bluffs, hence the manifest is headed almost due west.

The 684 signals
Title:  The 684 signals
Description:  Until recently the Union Pacific main west of Shell Creek, NE (MP64) was current of traffic operation to Grand Island. Now the old standard UP block signals are gone, the pole lines have come down and dispatchers can get fancy with sorting trains on either track. An approaching eastbound has a green light.

Only come mid-March did the weather become mild enough to melt the accumulated snow such that the two-wheeler might become the railfan vehicle of choice. Theres a real sweet Grand Trunk "The Good Track Road" hi-cube that just rumbled past. This outfit was making track speed.
