Nebraska Railroad History
From Omaha to Promintory Point, Utah, and on to California, Nebraska was the Gateway to the West for folks traveling on the Iron Road. Many of our ancestors worked on those Iron Roads in Nebraska. Others came to Nebraska on them.
In the following pages, we have tried - and will continue to try - to document information on Nebraska'a railroads. We hope you not only find what you are looking for, but come away with a sense of what it was like for the early railroaders.
