There are many on here who have comprehensive old schedules or timetables of "fallen flags" like the Rock Island. A man told me about his experience of going off to Korea from Ottumwa, Iowa via Los Angeles. He claims to have boarded a Rock Island Doodlebug for Eldon. Iowa which was one of the flag stops for the Golden State and the Imperial. It was a scheduled stop for #43 (think that was the Californian). Have seen photos of Rock Island Doodlebugs, but was not aware of one which might have run between Des Moines to Eldon, Iowa. It makes sense that Rock Island would have used the Doodlebugs for Des Moines passengers to connect with California bound trains. Can anyone help?
