Within the past week, others have reported it eastbound from Council Bluffs to Chicago and then south to Texas at the head of an officer's special (apparently the Chief Engineer is out inspecting his track).  Although it was seen at various points in Oklahoma and Texas, I have not heard it is back north as yet.

I saw it once, last year on a Sunday morning heading north out of Omaha, it had the business behind it, was some kind of excursion.
