UP 7261 - Brady, NE

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.
