I chased UP #3985 from Cheyenne to North Platte on Sept 18. It was a good if somewhat hectic chase. There were about 20 cars chasing it with me, and I often had to pass about 10 cars on a narrow two lane highway to get to the next run by. Here are some of my shots.

Pine Bluffs WY

Potter NE

Potter NE Point of Rocks

Brule NE

North Platte NE

I think that they had to adjust the brakes on the two engines, but other than that it was running well.
There is a nice new tower in North Platte. For $6 you can go to the top and get a really great view of the yards and countryside.


I couldn't stay for the Rail Road Days that weekend which looked really interesting.

Thanks guys. Leon, nice to see your photos. I suppose you loaded up at the souvenir car. They have alot of nice stuff. I really like their hats and T Shirts.

Some guys go hunting for big game in the Fall. I like to chase iron monsters. I look forward to it's return to Cheyenne.
