In the last few minutes of sunlight, a fresh beaver leads CP 474 towards Nahant Yard, and eventually, Kansas City's Knoche Yard.
A rarity around these parts, a barn unit leads H WLMKCK1 11A just outside of Lincoln towards its final destination of Kansas City.
BNSF 267 and the Lincoln-Hastings manifest have just left Lincoln's Hobson Yard and is about to connect with the other half of the Hastings Sub and head towards Hastings.
6988 is out in the country but will soon arrive in Mitchellville.
6988 leads one of its trips back into Mitchellville, where it will re-load passengers.
IAIS QJ 6988 leads the 2nd trip out of five up the hill and into Altoona.
CN L573 with a rare non-CN leader takes a brief pause in Denison yard to swap crews with L572 before continuing towards Council Bluffs.
On a mild day for February, BNSF 2128 leads the Aurora Local past a bunch of dormant grass and the last remaining snow from a storm the week before.
BNSF 662 leads the Lincoln-Hastings manifest through a completely white landscape. This area is beautiful during the Summer with wildflowers and cornfields but in the Winter the landscape is dead.
A pretty diverse grain train makes its way North/West through East Dubuque.
After leading the transfer to the BNSF yard the night before, these two former BNSF units make their way back into the yard of their new leasers, KCS.
Definitely had to catch this when I heard it on the scanner. One of only two remaining TFM SD70MACs leads a KCS grain runthrough into Lincoln.
A nice unlikely surprise, the older leading the newer. An SD40-2 leads an ET44AH on a BNSF autorack train through the Twin Cities, just leaving Northtown yard.
I was lucky enough to have this train pass right after high sun hours. This thing hasn't had a CP leader in a long time so this is a treat.
The BNSF-NS transfer with pretty nice power heads towards the NS autorack facility near Birmingham, MO.
