Assigned to Colorado's Moffat Tunnel, located about 50 miles west of Denver, Union Pacific Manager of Electrical Maintenance Kenny Dunn typically sees wildlife off in the distance. That is, until recently, when he came face to face with a great horned owl.

Dunn responded after Locomotive Engineer Pat Sims spotted the owl in the tunnel while passing through en route to Bond, Colorado. "When I approached her, she lifted her wings and leg in defense, but she was too tired," Dunn said. "I think she'd probably been in there a couple of days."

Dunn wrapped the owl, which he affectionately named Ms. Moffat, in a blanket and took her out of the tunnel. He gently placed her in a box and contacted the Gilpin County Sheriff's Department, which referred him to the Birds of Prey Foundation, a rehabilitation organization for raptors and other species.

Ms. Moffat is recovering in one of the organization's large flight enclosures and Sims has paid her a visit. While a specific release date cannot be predicted, the owl likely will be released within the next few months.

The passengers head toward the station, oblivious to the extraordinary effort that has gone into making their morning routine reliably routine.
In the pre-dawn drizzle of an early fall day, commuters in Evanston, Illinois, a suburb just north of Chicago, watch an inbound Metra train pull into the station at precisely 6:13 a.m. They line up where they know doors will most likely open and sort themselves out, some heading to the upper deck for the tree-top view.

#ICYMI: It's not too late to see the holiday model train exhibit at the Union Pacific Museum in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The exhibit will remain available today until 4 p.m., and tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Two retirees and life-long devotees of a hobby have put a ton of time and effort into their craft.
