|Retired railroader Lynn Bilyeu|
There's something about railroading that captures the imagination. And we were pleasantly surprised to see a Scottsbluff Star-Herald story about the Chicago & Northwestern Railway line that served western Nebraska and the surrounding region for many decades.
The story was told by a railroader whom we've had the pleasure of knowing for many years – Lynn Bilyeu of Chadron – pictured here from a photo taken a few years ago. A long-time telegrapher and dispatcher with the C&NW, Lynn is also a veteran amateur radio operator (KØODF) and is one of the few who continues to operate "CW" using Morse Code. But that's another story!
Here's a link to Steve Frederick's story in the Star-Herald:
