Railroads of Southeast Iowa

Railroads -- the backbone of middle America

Steam locomotives first crossed the Mississippi River in the 1850s, initiating a great age of westward expansion, commerce and travel. This  collection of photographs from the 1800s to the present day celebrates the railroads and railroaders of Southeastern Iowa.

Images from The Lemberger Collection

Photographer and archivist Michael W. Lemberger began collecting images at the age of eight when he discovered a cache of glass negatives in his great-aunt's attic. In the next 60 years he amassed more than a million negatives, including his own photographs and those of other professional and dedicated amateur photographers.

The Lemberger Collection (www.mlemberger.com) has been called the largest and best-documented privately-owned collection in the world.
