Remarks & Notes 
The Hub City Heritage Corporation Railway Museum had their Railroad Days on August 19/20 this year. For the event the Iowa Northern owned Rock Island E-units were brought up from Waterloo and put on display for their 1st public display since arriving at the Iowa Northern in July. The Hub City Museum did a private night shoot to raise money for to continued restoration of the CGW 116A. After probably over 30 years of sitting since its last run, the 116 was recently fired back up on August 14th. Lots of hard work has gone into this unit already, and more is planned! This is a nice little museum if anyone is in the area. The Rock Island E-units are still in deciding factor on what is going to be done with them, so the rumor goes?
