Unfortunately, not much info on this operation I've seen lately. As you note, a lot of their interesting trackage has been taken out of service, and as I understand, there is not much left for them to do on that operation.

Not sure if you are aware, but they also work in an extensive industrial park in Bensenville, IL on the west side of O'Hare International Airport. However, that has nowhere near the character that the original operation did.

Hopefully someone else can add more. If nothing else, please let us know how your trip goes. Once that downtown trackage disappeared, this one seems to have completely fallen off peoples' radar. I used to have a very solid contact at Iowa Pacific, but unfortunately no longer do. Overall, they tend to be a pretty friendly operation.
