Little train at Pomona
Author: santafe199

With no particular agenda I got out of the house this afternoon and decided to go with whatever whim took me at the moment. I ran US 24 east to Topeka, then ended up heading south and a bit east to visit the BNSF main line at Pomona. Traffic was sparse to say the least. But I did bag one WB train in good light. I watched as a headlight from over 4 miles away got steadily bigger. Good enough for another thread in my “little train” series...

1. Looking through 300mm of tele-boomer glass BNSF 5158 is nearing the end of about 3 miles, maybe more, of tangent track, approaching my spot at the Arkansas Terrace crossing SW of Pomona, KS. The last leg of this track now swerves slightly because of a recent double track bridge replacement just west of the crossing.

Thanks for looking!

With this thread title I was expecting to see the outdoor train layout at the Los Angeles County Fairplex in Pomona, California.

There’s also a Pomona in New York, New Jersey, and a RR place name on a former Southern mainlane in North Carolina.  It seems the Roman goddess of fruit and orchards is well represented across the US.

It’s amazing how many people think there is absolutely nothing outside the state of California…

That aside, there's a lot more going on in Pomona CA than in Pomona KS.
