Union Pacific 844 Comes to Omaha

I chased the 844 today as it made its way north to Omaha.  I was fortunate to be able to see it go by twice since it had to stop at the BNSF/UP diamond just north of Plattsmouth.  It will be displayed on a track just north of TD Ameritrade Park for the College World Series.   It's nice to take a break once in a while from model railroading and watch the real thing.

There's nothing quite like watching live steam rolling down the tracks.
