Newton Sub highlights and NS power

New hoppers on the siding at Kellogg, Iowa

The seven or so passenger cars from Texas arrived at Newton. They have RRDX reporting marks for the parent company of the IAIS-Railroad Development Corp.

Sometimes you get bored waiting for a specific train to roll east. So I took a pic of the Colfax station sign. By the way, the NS loaded grain train was who I was waiting for. By the time I got back to South Amana, the train was departing Des Moines. Tried to wait west of Victor but the sun was nearing setting and I gave up and went home.

I did get my wish for a SD60E-6981, though it was in South Amana Yard.

The 6981 plus this unit 2643 was put on the westbound train BICB27 to head to either Newton or Des Moines.
