File Size:16MB


The Iowa Department of Transportation, with assistance from the Iowa Economic Development Authority, first assembled this Iowa Rail Toolkit to support the exploration of rail transportation services in the state in 2014. Since then, almost 2,000 toolkits have been distributed and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Information is included in the handbook to help make shipping by rail in Iowa easier and more understandable. Chapters have been assembled to provide current information on the benefits of rail transportation and basic explanations of how to access the rail network. A directory of Iowa railroad companies is included listing contact information and a basic profile of each network. Economic development resources are also identified to help new users find resources for using and establishing rail access.
