Heritage unit and our Nation's Bird

February 1, 2010--This was the first chase of the Iowa Interstate's 
newest heritage locomotive. 
IAIS 513 donned the original Rock Island paint scheme;
seen here at the West Liberty Rock Island depot.

February 15, 2010--My first sighting of our National
Bird, the Bald Eagle. Here he feasts on a carcass
that the Union Pacific trains have left behind.

February 16, 2010--Iowa Interstate's heritage unit,
#513 leads the CRIC-16 into Coralville, IA on
a cloudless sunny day.
