Council Bluffs, Iowa

Council Bluffs is the Iowa side of the city of Omaha, Nebraska and is the western terminus of the IAIS.

December 28th, 2019

We followed the Iowa Interstate (IAIS) from Davenport to Omaha, catching an eastbound intermodal and ethanol train almost immediately, and parked but noisy power with a work clearance but not moving at Newport. We finished the day at the west end of the line watching headlights reflecting off the sides of nearby freight cars without the power ever actually materialising, to the amusement of a friendly railway security officer.
