APNC/BNSF Overpass
Posted September 10, 2016, by Andy Winegar

Just a side note, the APNC has been leased to Progressive Rail out of Lakeville, MN, who will operate it as a subsidiary of the Iowa Traction Railway named Iowa Southern Railway. They expect to increase traffic through transloading with its connections to BNSF, NS, and CP.
