A FEW MINUTES AT EGBERT, NEBRASKA

A few years ago, as I was heading east to North Platte on US 30, I pulled off the highway at egbert. For me, it was just a name on maps of the Union Pacific Railroad and I wanted to see what was there. These images are the result of the impromptu visit. For some reason unknown to me, the raw images are overexposed. I have attempted to “fix” them and I apologize for the less than good color rendition.

About THE OLD MACHINIST

I am 87 years old and married for 65 years. My wife passed away in 2016. I am a retired engineer and spent 35 years developing INS gyroscopes. I was a High School mentor in physics, a mountaineer, a model builder, a machinist and I have a degree in Physics. My interests include railroad history and photography, science history, cosmology, interesting people, and old engineering drawings. I place a high value on my friendships. I enjoyed my life and I am trying to look forward with a sense of anticipation and curiosity.
