Great day at Pomona/ Quenemo area yesterday.
Author: lilwes

I spent a very enjoyable day in the Pomona/Quenemo area on the BNSF Transcon. The first train I saw (which is not posted here) was a 2 mile long doublestack. All 4 of the photo's posted were taken from an angle not commonly availed to us except on cloudy days. Also as you can see here are some more looks at the new bridge at Pomona.
Thanks for looking, Wes

Nice series Wes. I hope to get back there again. Perhaps you could be my guide to that area. Then we could catch some Chicken Fried Steak on the way back to Topeka.

There is a town in KS  named Pomona?  I thought only California had a town with that name.  The article was in the Western Railroads section...a little confusing...

There's also one in North Carolina, on the old Southern Railroad.  I remember an article in Trains magazine from the late 70s/early 80s about spending an hour or two and seeing a lot of trains in that time.

I guess the Roman goddess of orchard fruit inspired at least 3 states to name towns after her.

Kansas is west of the Mississippi, so it's in the right section.
