Coal for North Western Power

Jewell Junction, Iowa Part 3 The Comeback and Today by Richard Steffen

The new year got off to a difficult start upon hearing the news of C&NWHS member Fred Klinger’s passing. Within a day, Kevin EuDaly came around to my desk to report the passing of Jim Boyd as well, a friend and longtime railroad journalist/photographer of Railfan & Railroad fame. These two men certainly experienced the drama of railroading along the Chicago & North Western. Their documentation and promotion of this great road will live on, but we will miss them. We extend our thoughts and prayers to their families.
The start of 2011 brings us to the kickoff of our Peoria features. Peoria, as you already know, is the site for the C&NWHS Annual Meet. In this issue, Gene Lewis takes us through the history of railroading around the Peoria area. In addition, Joe Piersen compiled an extensive “collage-style” sidebar on coal operations that covered the region.
Richard Steffen’s part 3 of Jewell Junction, Iowa, wraps up this excellent and well-researched series. I’d also like to extend a sincere thank you to Steve Glischinski for sending along photos and information on the re-creation of the M&StL. All I have to say about this stunning news feature is I really wish I could have been there!
In closing, we welcome Erich Russ to these pages as he begins a column on preservation. Erich is the vice president of the C&NWHS. You’ll find his first report on an old C&NW baggage car interesting. We also plan to keep modelers updated on new products and hope to turn over modeling articles for future editions.
We’ll see you next issue as we continue on “The Road to Peoria.”
