In October of 1988, a search for photographs and information on the Burlington Route's rail line, that ran from Burlington to Washington between 1880 and 1979, brought me to Washington, Iowa to meet with Charles Franzen. I had heard he was very informed on the railroads in Washington, and had a fine collection of photographs. Needless to say I was very anxious to meet with him. Charles was happy to share his photographs and information with me to use in an article I was preparing for the Burlington Route Historical Society's publication the "Burlington Bulletin."
