 Brad's railfanning series

    I went videotaping trains from Wood River to Kearney along the Union Pacific's Kearney Subdivision. I ended up with 20 Union Pacific trains. I could have gotten more in the late afternoon. But it rained from Kearney to West of Wood River. While it not rained, i did a food review. Got a UP 2001 the olympic torch locomotive. A few times during the day, i got 7 locomotives including the SD60 unit at Gibbon Junction.

Brad's railfanning series

      It was National train Day, and i wanted to go out and videotape trains. Despite the cool start, it was a nice day to videotape trains along the BNSF's Ravenna & Sandhills Subdivision from Grand Island to Ansley,NE. I videotaped 10 BNSF trains. I did a food review on cream cheese & chives potato chips. Before that, i stop at Subway in Ravenna to get me something to eat for lunch and went to the rest area in Litchfield and have a picnic and videotaping trains while i was at the rest area.

Union Pacific action from West of Kearney to Grand Island,NE on April 24...

Brad's railfanning series

      I decided to go film along the Union Pacific line. I saw a train heading into Wood River. I filmed a manifest train in Wood River in which my co-worker does live near the Union Pacific tracks. After that, i went to Cabela's in Kearney to go use the restroom. After that, i see 2 union pacific trains in Kearney. I had to pick which train i should go after. I pick the intermodal train over the loaded coal train. I filmed the intermodal train west of Kearney. It was a great choice because of another train that has 7 Union Pacific units. The intermodal train had 4 units. For a grand total of 11 units.

      After that, i went to Gibbon to film some more Union Pacific train in Gibbon. In between, I had to get 3 2-liters of Pepsi products at dollar general. I had a spicy italian sub from Subway, & did 2 new food reviews on youtube. I originally wanted this video to be my 2900th video, but that didn't happen oh,well. I filmed more Union Pacific trains from west of Gibbon to the last train of the day west of Grand Island. I ended up filming 21 trains.
