View Full Version : UP in Omaha

Hi... this is a bit of an obscure and random question.. but have any railfans in and around Omaha/CB IA noticed interesting action on the UP in the last few months? They have been running a lot more WB autoracks, coal empties, and manifest through CB which usually route on the north Blair sub. They are running both on the UP Omaha Sub and the IC/CN line. I took a drive up north and noticed a lot of track work around Kennard, NE, apparantly they are doing a concrete tie project. I think it is kind of fun seing UP SD70Ms and such rolling down the IC/CN through Council Bluffs. Any word on if the IC requires pilots on this line for UP runs?

Talk to you later, Boo
