Good stuff, K-Man, thanks for posting.  

Is the Des Moines Line still mostly ten miles per hour?  I had thought there ahd been talk of upgrading it, but haven't heard anything.

As far as I know its still 10mph in some places but not exactly sure where. Sunday nights train to Des Moines had work at Albia and at Runnells. Might ask my sources to see if they know anything.
