The Passing of a Fine Engineer

Lynn Nystrom, engineer for Union Pacific's steam division, passed away from a massive coronary attack earlier this week.

Mr. Nystrom was engineer the day I got to ride in the cab of 844 back in 2006. I wish my condolences to his family, as I'm sure do many whose lives this man literally steamed through.

Thanks again for the ride, Mr. Nystrom. May yours be as pleasant.
