Scott the location is South Omaha, the meat packing district. The depot on the right is the South Omaha depot. The stockpens to the left are the Omaha Stock Yards. The elevator in the distant left appears to be the Nixon Feed elevator. This area was filled with complex trackwork, witness the double slips, crossovers, etc. The switchers are most likely South Omaha Terminal Railway Co. locos.

Are we sure that's Omaha?  The nameboard on the station to the does not appear to say OMAHA or even OMAHA NEB.


Which railroad's switchers are those?  I love the one to the far left almost completely shrouded in steam.  Looks like something out of a Thomas the Tank Engine episode.
