Sunday in Western Iowa
Author: MILW86A

Went out to the Council Bluffs Train show today and got some action from the local roads.

1. IAIS 0600 Switcher at Council Bluffs. Grow Tower once stood here to protect the MILW, RI and Q. All gone except the RI. 

2. IAIS CBBI-08 at Peter Iowa. He would make a 50 car pick up at Atlantic. 

3. A Nice treat on the DPU

Grteat pics. Thanks for sharing. Is the CN local to Council Bluffs a daily train? The consist on one train looks pretty anemic for a daily train.

Yes.572 meets 573 at Denison. I believe it's daily now. Was a 6 day a week job at one point.
