047 History of Railroads in North Omaha

The Belt Line railway was once a passenger service, then an industrial line for 75+ years. Today, there’s nothing left of it besides an empty rail bed. The railroad heading up the modern-day Sorensen Parkway was the Fremont, Elkhorn & Missouri Valley Railroad. Another railroad headed north from the Webster Street Station north to Florence and points beyond. It was the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railway, aka the Omaha Road.

  1. Nice podcast with interesting comments! Am still surprised that the trestle across Carter Lake was rebuilt after the tornado.

    But I can’t help but wish this was a video instead of a podcast, so we could see maps and images of the areas being talked about.
