Wind turbine blades catch the afternoon sunshine as they sit on flatbed cars in the railway yard in McCook Tuesday, the east end far from the west. Every once in a while, the blades come through on trucks and trailers on Highway 83, needing traffic control to negotiate 90-degrees turns into and out of McCook. But on a train? That's an uncommon sight.
