CP in NE Iowa - 10 Oct
Author: Mid_Iowa_Rails

After the NRHS - IA fall meeting in the morning, some of us went and chased trains along the CP line. Here are some of my catches. (If some of these look nearly identical to some of MILW86A's shots, that's because we shot them within 10' of each other.)
1) SB grain train with foreign power rolls out of Marquette yard.
2) NB local stopped in the Eckards siding.
3) Local pulling out of the siding onto the main.

1) Grain train with a single BNSF unit for power approaches the south end of the Eckards siding.
2) The same train from the first image rolls through Guttenberg, Iowa.

In MILW86A's post with his images, he mentioned that it was:
> Its a radio controlled switch. Green means lined
> on main. Red would mean lined for the siding.
> ICE/DME turned a few sidings to radio controlled
> operation before the CP Takeover in 2007.
