Starting in 1881, the Missouri Pacific extended its tracks north and west to serve the rich riverfront and prairie lands of southeast Nebraska. For 101 years until its merger with the Union Pacific, the MoPac was a familiar method of conveyance touching the lives of both small-town denziens and the state's metropolitan centers of Lincoln and Omaha. The story of the MoPac in Nebraska includes the historic Omaha Belt Line and Union connection to Lincoln, the glory days of the Missouri River Eagle steamliner and the melancholy demise of steam power. Missouri Pacific River and Prairie Rails provides an expertly written memorial to a fondly remembered railroad.
