2016 Railroad Photos

SD40-2 Locomotives and Cabooses in 2016

It's great that we an still photograph SD40-2 Locomotives (or SD40N now)and Cabooses in 2016! The SD40-2s are sharp looking too, nice paint and not tagged!

July thru September 2016

I was going back through the summer of 2016 and found several images I never posted. I was actually quite surprised I took this many photos because it doesn't feel like I got track-side much at all this summer...

Its been way too long since I have posted any photos, but I actually made it out to the tracks with my camera 3 times since Thanksgiving!

First off Black Friday:

1. BNSF Bayard Train in the foreground, IAIS CBBI in the background. BNSF has just returned and waiting a crew to take it back to Omaha, IAIS is just departing town.
Image

2. IAIS CBBI departing Council Bluffs, IA
Image

3. Road Power siting in Council Bluffs
Image

4. A bunch of CSX power in Council Bluffs
Image

5. BNSF Gibson Yard in Omaha
Image

Now on to 12/3/2016 - Our first snow of the season in the Omaha Council Bluffs Metro Area.

6. UP intermodal train making a setout in Council Bluffs
Image

7. A new or clean GE in the old CNW yard, now UP North Council Bluffs yard
Image

8. CN Local power in Council Bluffs
Image

9. A UP Stack train coming out of the IAIS Yard in Council Bluffs.
Image

10. Same UP Stack train coming out of the IAIS Yard in Council Bluffs with a KCS locomotive.
Image

11. The Prize of the set!!! My wife actually took this one... We were driving down the road and I saw the IAIS BICB rounding the corner so I put the camera in her lap and said quick, take a photo. I'd say she did good!
Image


Today 12/4/2016:

12. Downtown Omaha. Not quite sure what local this is, but it backed up out of Gibson with a caboose in the lead and after it cleared the switch it pulled forward and eventually went to Council Bluffs.
Image

13. Downtown Omaha. Same train, showing an older GE here.
Image

14. Downtown Omaha. In this shot you will see the same BNSF trian on the right side of the photo, it waited for this UP train to clear before it could head over to Council Bluffs.
Image

15. CN Road Power left, local power right, Council Bluffs, Iowa
Image

16. A pair of UP SD40-2 that have been floating around Council Bluffs lately. This is in the old CNW yard in North Council Bluffs. There is another 17XX SD40-2 down in the other UP Yard too.

Been cold an cloudy around here, but that's not always a bad thing.

12/17/2016
1. Love this scene at Abel on the Sioux City Sub. Something about the trees and grass mixed with the snow really do it for me.
Image

2. Just north of Abel, also on the Sioux City Sub
Image

3. West of Ashland on the Creston Sub
Image

12/10/2016

4. BNSF newly shared section of IAIS in front of the former Rock Island Depot. Previously BNSF had their own line about a 1/2 block east (Behind) the depot.
Image

5. Herzog train at Pacific Junction. For those not familiar with the area, this train is parked on the old main line that went up to the diamond. While the diamond is gone, all 4 of the legs of the connecting tracks are still in place and in service.

Nice photos Brad!

Why does the Herzog say "do not hump"?

Interesting. I was thinking there were just some people who really like trains.

There are times during the video that it sounds like Dave Coullier.

Brad: is there a way a person could go about purchasing images you have taken, but aren't listed as 'for sale' on your page? I love the photo your wife took of the bnsf in the snow, and would consider having it as a print. It may even be something others here would be interested in, too :) Thoughts?

Not sure I know Dave Coullier, but Googled him and he is a comedian. At first I thought it was a comedian, but then he refers to this video "The Day That Made Me Famous":
