The Canadian Pacific purchased both the Dakota Minnesota and Eastern and sister railroad, Iowa Chicago and Eastern in October of 2007. Ownership formally changed hands in 2008. Although the Iowa Chicago and Eastern had a short life, the railroad changed the face of the former Milwaukee Road lines. In this program, C. Vision cameras capture trains on IC&E’s Corn Lines in Iowa and Minnesota. We begin with the Owatonna Sub, running north out of Mason City, to Owatonna and Faribault, Minnesota. We were fortunate to view this line operating as a through route before the Chicago to Huron trains, along with their southbound counterparts, were diverted in late 2008. Next, the Jackson Sub in Minnesota provides us with ethanol and local freight trains as they traverse the rich farmland of Southern Minnesota. We end with a journey across the Mason City Sub from Sheldon to Mason City, Iowa. This line provided us with many timeless scenes of long, heavy grain locals pounding along the 90-pound jointed rail at 25 miles-per-hour through the serene Northern Iowa countryside before the line was restricted to 10 miles-per-hour by the Canadian Pacific. Many beautiful evening and night scenes
were captured for your enjoyment on a line rarely documented by photographers. You'll be amazed as fireflies fill the air while IC&E's crews complete their nightly work around Spencer. We also capture trains grinding up the one percent grade out of the East Fork Des Moines River valley at Algona, and climbing the glacial boundary around Ruthven. This program captures the IC&E at its finest, during an era that can never be duplicated, so don’t miss a final look at this unique fallen flag in, "A Tribute to the Iowa, Chicago and Eastern, Volume 3: The Corn Lines"!
