Default Railfan in Omaha area

Hi... If you can make it as far as the Omaha area, there is plenty of action from UP, BNSF, IAIS, KCS, CN/IC, and Amtrak. Council Bluffs, IA is actually the best place to hang out, as you can get much closer to the action. I recommend the whole area east of 16th street, north and south of Broadway. There is plenty of UP traffic there. Also, IAIS has daily trains heading out from their yard, right under the I80 - I29 east junction. In Omaha, I recommend the Amtrak station, just south of downtown on 10th street, that is where the UP and BNSF come together. For the best BNSF action, I recommend the "Oreaopolis" area south of Offut AFB, just north of Plattsmouth on US 75, where the BNSF Omaha and Louisville subs, and the UP (former MoPac) Falls City sub all come together.
