INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing my book. This is my sixth effort in sharing my railfan activities with others. The Rocky Mountain and High Plains area have been my home for over thirty five years. During those years, I saw many changes in railroading on the Union Pacific's main line. The high volume of trains at all hours of the day makes it one of the superior train watching locations in the United States. I have spent many hours doing just that. A rare happening is to travel Interstate 80 or the paralleling secondary roads across Wyoming and Nebraska and not see a train. Usually, it's much more than just one or two.
When a railfan wants to get close to a train, he needs to be able to do this quickly. Quickness is paramount; the lack of it could mean the loss of a great photograph or a lost photo opportunity. The secondary roads leading to premier photo vantage points are rarely shown on the commonly used highway map. Topographical maps are very helpful but few are absolutely up-to-date and correct. Road status is constantly changing and they show roads that are either private or recently closed to traffic. Their size and cost also precludes purchasing them for every railfanning venture.
There are 6 1:24,000, 8 1:100,000, & 4 1:250,000 quadrangle topographical maps plus several other miscellaneous maps that cover all of the railroad trackage in the area between North Platte and Omaha. They are noted in the Map Reference section on pages 12 & 13. T
In preparing this book, I tried to determine what I would like to have had if I had never visited this main line trackage previously. Therefore, my opinions have determined my approach: lots of maps, detailed instructions and some miscellaneous information.
I hope that you enjoy and will make good use of my latest offering.
