Fort Madison, Iowa

Fort Madison is a large town along the Mississippi River, and one of the dual county seats of Lee County.

The city was built at the crossroads of a Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Mainline, as well as an Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Mainline.
Today, both these lines are part of the BNSF Railway System and are still heavily used.
