Review of Union Pacific Across Nebraska DVD

In August, 2010, Diverging Clear Productions visited the busiest freight railroad in the world: Union Pacific's Council Bluffs Subdivision.

After spending the night in Union Pacific's hometown of Omaha, we started trackside bright and early at the town of Fremont and followed the line west to North Platte. Along the way, we filmed plenty of action at towns along the route. In addition to Union Pacific hot spots such as Gibbon and Grand Island, we filmed a former Belt Railway of Chicago GP7 at a grain elevator and a Nebraska Central crew going about its work along the UP at Central City. We also spent some time pacing trains from adjacent U.S. 30 near Columbus and Maxwell.

At North Platte, we visited some of the railroad displays in city parks. Highlights included Challenger #3977 and Centennial #6922 on display alongside the Hershey, Nebraska, depot in Cody Park north of downtown. We also visited another steamer on display, 2-8-0 #480, at a park south of the railroad
