Trainscapes: Rare Last Electric America Freight Railway

Welcome to Trainscapes. Each week, we will feature train content including videos of trains and behind the scenes action of trains and locomotives!

Did you know that there is one last freight railroad that runs on overhead electric lines?  Iowa Traction Railway uses ancient and historic electric locomotives with trolley poles on a branch line railroad in Mason City, Iowa.  Canadian Pacific Railroad & Union Pacific Railroad have interchange traffic with Iowa Traction Railway.

YouTube channel Jaw Tooth profiles this railway, and of course there is other awesome train action!
