UP Big Boy in Cedar Rapids

Post by Conrail4014/EL825 » Tue Jul 30, 2019 4:02 pm

Hi All!

I have a question about the Big Boy in Cedar Rapids. I know it's not a public event, so I'm not looking for "special access," but I have a friend plus two youngsters that would like to see the train either arrive or depart. Does anyone have good locations in Cedar Rapids they could recommend (that don't involve trespassing, of course)?

Thanks in advance,
