New railcam at Mills Iowa
Permalink  
 


Another independent railcam much like Dunn or Medina MN or Greenville TX or Palmer Jct MA and a few more that arent part of the Virtual Railfan network.

Mills Iowa near Iowa Falls and crossing of the Illinois Central line from Chicago to Omaha and the Rock Island "Spine Line" from Minneapolis to Kansas City.

Its now the crossing of the UP Mason City Sub with the CN Waterloo Sub. Actually seen a train already a UP methanol train. There was railroad radio included.

This has promise for your "other tab" like casting your bait fishing and set your pole in the ground and wait for a "ding ding ding". Not sure of the train

frequency but must 20 trains a day.

We called 'em Meth Trains, even though they should probably have been called Eth Trains.

There is quite a history at Mills Tower and all kinds of artifacts from the days of "operators". Mills Tower was
run down retired but a group rehabbed the tower and now a historical place. And now a live camera.
