    That looks like a depot in the Amana photo. Ex-MILW? RI?

    Great coverage, Buddy! Boy, the IAIS got some great looking diesels for that train, and I love what Mr. Posner has done with the 6988. It looks pretty "American." I see also that Steve Sandberg's rolling stock was put to good use, including the Cedar Rapids obs.

    Yes sir, it is ex MILW. This section of line is the only Milwaukee line left in existence in this area, AFAIK.
