Washington, Iowa

Washington once had three railroads, including a Milwaukee Road main line, a Rock Island main line, and a Rock Island branch line.
Today, the Milwaukee is a Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern main line, while the Rock Island main line has largely been abandoned. The Rock Island branch line is now a trail.
