3 Train Saturday on the IAIS
Author: MILW86A

Usually the West End of the IAIS Only sees regular trains CBBI/BICB but yesterday there were 4 trains thru Des Moines. I nabbed 3 of the 4.


1. NSPEDM at 7th St in near downtown Des Moines. The train will to E 4th St, where NS Job 1 will pull the empties into their E 18th St yard, 

2. Conductor getting on the NS 6902 with his grip. The crew was from South Amana. They will tie onto the loads and air test before being relieved. 

3. Engineer Dallas gives a window wash to NS 6902. 

More to come......
