UP 8027         
UP 8027 leads a westbound manifest through Missouri Valley as a coal train comes off the east leg of the wye. Most eastbound traffic operates via Council Bluffs and thence compass north to Missouri Valley, where the line heads northeastward to follow the Boyer River valley toward Dennison. Westbound traffic operates via Blair, NE on a shorter route to Fremont, NE that bypasses Council Bluffs, hence the manifest is headed almost due west.
