By the rails--UP, IAIS

NS 8151 in the consist of an eastbound UP train at Fairfax.
Video below entitled, "One Each Way".

Iowa Interstate's Cedar Rapids Turn climbing up out of the Prairie Creek valley at Fairfax.

Power was in Notch 8 with SD38-2 153(2nd unit) giving me a smoke show.

The Turn coming into Walford.

The Turn at the bottom of Walford Hill making a run for the Amanas.

My favorite shot of the chase.

Climbing up out of the Iowa River valley and up the east wye at Yocum Connection.

Turn about to enter the Iowa City Subdivision from the Cedar Rapids Sub.

A little story to this series--
IAIS GP38-2 715 sits attached to a line of soon-to-be BICB freight. But the 715 would not be there for long........ ES44AC 502 & 508, who came east earlier in the day as light power from Des Moines, ties on to the line of cars. You can see in the far right side of the photo the rear of the Turn.
