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.

IANW 632
Title:  IANW 632
Description:  Looking down 632s nose, we're heading back light to pick up the next cut. We had to split the train again west of Spirit Lake in order to make a hill on the east to town.

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.

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....

Switching Ocheyedan
Title:  Switching Ocheyedan
Description:  We've arrived at Ocheyedan, and it's time for me to put down the camera and go to work. Loads of fertilizer are going to the elevator behind, and the MTs are being swapped for loads of corn, to make up a unit train for next week. I won't see it, as my resignation become effective after this trip.
