Remarks & Notes 
The UP main thru Iowa doesn't cross very many watersheds that causes alot of grades and difficulty for the the trains like some of the other mains thru Iowa do. One of the places where the mainline does climbs and dips is between Belle Plaine and Blairstown where the main works out of the Iowa River watershed and drops back down into the Prairie Creek watershed. Here an monster North Platte freight begins the climb into Luzerne as it crosses county highway E68 and passes this cool farmstead. The train has 2x2x1 DP setup for trip into Chicago Proviso Yard.
