Time Passages (an apology to Al Stewart)
The only rail operation like this in the United States is in Mason City, IA and anytime I am near, a visit is required! Always a thrill to see these nearly 100 year old electric motors shuttling cars around like they were built yesterday! If you are ever in Mason City, IA, be sure to stop in and say hi to the crews who operate this active railroad.
