Trains of the Dakota & Iowa Railroad

The Dakota & Iowa Railroad is a scenic 138 mile shortline. The D&I Railroad operates their trains over former Milwaukee road trackage. This fascinating rail system is owned by LG Everist, Inc. and begins at their large sand and rock quarry in Dell Rapids, South Dakota. Traveling south the rail line passes through Sioux Falls, SD as the tracks then wind their way along and over the Big Sioux River all the way to Sioux City, Iowa. The DAIR action includes unit aggregate trains, grain, ethanol and general freight. Their very long trains are powered with up to 10 diesel lashups as they work the rolling grades and across the scenic countryside. Diesel power on the Dakota & Iowa include 15 GP9's, a GP20, and a few GP39-2's, GP50's and SD39's. Plus a brief look at some of the DAIR's connecting railroads being the Burlington Northern, Ellis & Eastern and the BNSF. Rail footage 1992-1995 / 2007-2008.
