My last vacation I went out to Iowa and Kansas and followed the Iowa Northern and The Kyle RR to get pictures of the remaining stations and what ever else I could find of the Rock Island. Found some cars, Engine facilities, Roundhouses and some other misc Rock things. If you would like to check them out http://groups.msn.com/JohnsCustomTrains If anyone knows of more RI stations that still exist I would appeciate info so I can plan my next vacation. I looked at the RITS site but I believe their list is several years old. I have also gone down the Chicago line out to Silvis and Peoria but didn't have a digital camera at that time. One interesting item found at the old Silvis shops was a SW1500 still in the maroon and yellow scheme on shop trucks. That was back in 2000 or 2001, whatever year they had the bad flood in the Quad Cities area. Thanks for any info ahead of time.
