Cedar Rapids, Iowa - 1947

Photos by Anthony F. Krisak

         This series of night photos were all taken at the WCF&N depot at Cedar Rapids. Car 142 is a combination coach /baggage car. In the early days of the interurban line two car trains were often used with No. 142 or a sister car in the lead followed by one of the three parlor cars 100-102. Following World War II a single car could normally handle the traffic needs.
         The WCF&N passenger cars were clean and well maintained even to the end of service in the mid 1950s as you can tell in these night shots.
