UP 7261 - Kearny Subdivison - Brady, NE

Image
Seen here is UP 7261 leading a manifest freight train west on Union Pacific's Kearney Subdivision, past two other trains, as the day begins to fade out. The train is heading toward Union Pacific's Bailey Yard in North Platte, Nebraska, which is about 20 miles further west of this location. At Bailey Yard, the train will either be reclassified into other trains, or it will continue on west from North Platte. 
The Kearny Subdivision runs between Grand Island, Nebraska, to North Platte, Nebraska, and it is part of Union Pacific's Overland Route. Between Gibbon, Nebraska, which is about 30 miles west of Grand Island, and North Platte, the line has three main tracks. At Gibbon, the Marysville Subdivision connects with the Kearney Subdivision.

Sunset - UP Kearney Subdivision - Maxwell, NE

Image
It's hard to tell but there are actually two Union Pacific trains opposing each other on the center track in this image. It's been so long that I don't remember which train diverged to another track. The train whose headlight you can see in the distance on the center track has recently left Union Pacific's Bailey Yard and is heading east on Union Pacific Kearney Subdivision.
