The daily Cedar Rapids Turn to Manchester finds the SD40-2 IC 6100 making a turn over East Main Street in Central City, IA.

Power: SD40-2 IC 6100, GTW GP38-2 5812.
I was Railfanning at Willett Iowa on the UP Boone sub waiting for a CN Train all day long and one never showed up. :(
That's why you need to come down to Cedar Rapids to chase the turn to Manchester. THAT'S where all the action is :D . If that is the same line that runs thru Waterloo, then it only sees about 5-6 trains a day :( . The turn usually departs from Cedar Rapids around 1200 to 1400 to head to Manchester to drop off its empties and works some of the industries there and returns later with its fills from the set-off tracks in Manchester.
