|Ex-GBW / Omaha Road Merrillan Depot, now used by the Union Pacific.
This depot was operated jointly by GB&W and the Omaha Road (later
Chicago & North Western). This depot still looks pretty good
today! It has been repainted and given a new roof by the Union
Pacific. This photo looks northwest and shows Norfolk Southern
