Looking SW down the tracks towards the bridge. This railroad line was once one of four Chicago and Great Western mainlines that radiated from Oelwein, IA, which is NE of here. This particular line once ran all the way to Kansas City and hosted high speed passenger trains and long freights. Now it is just a humble branch line from Waterloo to Oelwein.
