Iowa Traction

Post by aline1969 »

Hello, hopefully this is the right forum for I would think this is a short line operation. They have something like 8-10 miles of track but only use a small amount now.

I was there last month, neat little operation but can anyone tell me why they don't use either end of the line?? lost customers??
Replace the 57 with the Green Line!!! The people demand more transit, more new routes

The only customer theyswitch on a regular basis is the grain elevator. I think that is it for customers as of now.
