Remarks & Notes 
Sometimes don't you wonder why the railroad does what it does? Well this is one of those places at Ackley. CN usually to rips out anything and everything that doesn't get used to help with cost control. Well here at Ackley the CN at one time to operate this ex-M&STL trackage north up to Geneva, IA. Around 2009 the track was abandoned and the diamond was removed. For some unknown reason the northbound pot signal is still in and working for track that you can't even get too anymore. CN uses the track south of here to interchange cars with the Iowa River Railroad. North of here never knew there was a railroad, just about everything has been removed. Just an odd ball situation that has been overlooked by the railroad. Photo: taken on CN property, by CN employee.

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
