We wandered our way from Omaha, Nebraska to the middle of Kansas and had a banner day of catching parked shortline equipment and briefly chasing a westbound coal train.
Ashland is just west of Omaha along the BNSF with heavy coal traffic.
We spotted a BNSF coal train heading north as we crossed a bridge on the I-80 and had just enough time to catch it eastbound along state highway 6.
We got ahead of the coal train as it slowed down for a meet, catching a BNSF westbound loaded coal train as well.
