COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) – A Buffalo Bill re-enactor will be speaking at the Union Pacific Railroad Museum in Council Bluffs, Iowa, as part of the museum’s second Saturday guided tours program.  Darrel Palser, of Council Bluffs, will be speaking at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday at the Omaha railroad’s history museum.
“Buffalo Bill” Cody supplied bison meat to the Union Pacific eastern division track crew during the 19th century. Darrel has been sharing the history of Buffalo Bill with the Council Bluffs community for years. Guided tours of the museum are offered every second Saturday and cover a wide range of topics. Always free, the tour talks expand on topics and themes already presented in the Museum.
