Pacing on US 20
Title:  Pacing on US 20
Description:  Chicago Central ran their trains at a pretty good clip for a regional that had taken over a hand me down unwanted division of a Class 1. Dont recall the speed here, but I do remember having to hustle to catch these guys. I was on US 20 near Winthrop following this 50 car eastbound. I think it was train 30.

Description:  A Chicago Central train passes grain bins at Jesup(thanks to Dylan for the correction. I had it as Winthrop). The reason for the railroads existence is plain here in Iowa. Every town has one of these, some of them quite large.
