Description:  Little Wabash Depot, aka "Little Union Station", view east from abandoned DMUR mainline, Des Moines IA; notice the juxtaposition of the, quite literally, overgrown and forgotten little station against a background of modern steel behemoths.

IAIS Engine 705 and NS 9019, Des Moines IA
Title:  IAIS Engine 705 and NS 9019, Des Moines IA
Description:  IAIS Engine 705 and NS 9019, parked under Fleur Ave bridge, downtown Des Moines IA; interesting partners in Des Moines railroading history. N&W acquired the Des Moines Union Railway, a formerly extensive and winding presence through downtown Des Moines, by first purchasing the entire Wabash outright, and then purchasing the Milwaukee Road portion of DSM tracks as that line went off to the SOO. Thus, upon the merger of N&W and SR, NS became owner of the extensive DMUR tracks winding throughout the city, and the large yard downtown. Similarly, IAIS bought up much of the CRI&P mainline through the state, and rehabbed a prominent track through the center of Des Moines - the CRI&P being the jewel of Des Moines rail. Now, some 35 years after the collapse of the great RI, and 30 years after the DMUR ceased, these two dogs are still running together; one big pup, the other small, but both quite busy.

Description:  IAIS Engines 511 and 509, heading east toward switch without cargo, Des Moines IA; IAIS Employee riding freight at rear. The sun sets on the back of these great engines - one hopes the sun should not soon set on the IAIS Railroad.
