Westbound UP 5935 and 5752 west of Fremont, Nebraska, March 14, 2011

It was the middle of March 2011 and I was standing along the brown grass and bare trees near the lakes of Fremont, Nebraska, no snow in sight, in fact it was a decent day for March. Not cold, but not warm either, and the important thing was that the spring thaw had hit.

As a pair of westbound Union Pacific GE AC44CWCTE units (UP 5935 and UP 5752) approached I noticed signs of winter still sticking around a little bit longer. On the front of 5935, and along the tops of the covered hoppers it pulled, the remnants of snowy weather to the east still held on tight.
