Chasing Union Pacific #844 Shiloh Limited

My son and I jumped in the car this morning with camera, ipad, ipod, and cell phone, and headed west to find Union Pacific #844 as it made its way west across Nebraska.  We couldn't have asked for a better day, especially in March where you never know what you are going to get.  We met up with the train in Duncan, Nebraska, and was able to chase it back towards Blair before I had spent about every ounce of enthusiasm from my 7 year old.  My crazy driving and my son's motivating chants of "come on dad" allowed us to get in front of the train 8 different times in a short afternoon.  It was a day well spent, and I never get tired of seeing real live steam.  Here are some of the highlights including a shot taken from the (moving) car.  (and people think teenagers texting while driving is bad!)
