Grain train
Title:  Grain train
Description:  We're getting ready to haul out 75 loads of corn. On IANW, this took two trips from the elevator to Spirit Lake, where we split again into 2 cuts each in order to make "Mount Mother", a 2% grade just east of Spirit Lake. We shoved outbounds for several miles, since there was no run-around at the UP interchange. The fun of shortlining. BTW, the flagging on 8711 is left over from the Fireworks passenger train the day before.

Last IANW train for me
Title:  Last IANW train for me
Description:  My last trip on Iowa Northwestern saw me working the rear of our train out of the truck. It gave me the chance to shoot us running through a driving snowstorm. Here, we are leaving Montgomery with 30 loads fertilizer and MT for grain loading.

Description:  Our IANW local is heading to Ocheyedan in a driving snowstorm. The engineer and conductor are warm in 632, while I'm in the truck following to protect the rear during several back moves. Yes, it's cold.

Iowa Northwestern Local
Title:  Iowa Northwestern Local
Description:  Although I've got a folder for IANW, I think a picture here is also required. IANW was so out-of-the-way that railfans hardly ever saw it running. I worked there, so I had an in. Pulling up the hill in a snowstorm, we're going to deliver MTs for corn loading, and loads of fertilizer. I still can't believe this is now a trail....
