From the Sanborn maps, it appears that L Street is the overpass. That places the station along the UP tracks which UP called the Old Main Line. The UP is the nearest 3 tracks to the station. The station I am almost sure is UP's South Omaha station. The other tracks belonged to Union Stock Yards Company. The stock yards are to the left (west) of the photographer.

Next to last photo was on e-bay for a while a couple of months ago.  I'm not sure whose station is shown there but multiple railroads ran through here.  I'm going to have to dig out my old Omaha map to be accurate.
