Assisting will be sixteen 4-color banners, two interactive kiosks as well as a highly designed graphic video monitor displaying seldom seen photos. In addition, Electric Railroads of Iowa will cover this unique form of transportation which benefitted Iowa citizens by making inter-city travel easier, growing businesses and enlarging cities. In addition, we will focus, through the use of rare photos and city maps the following: Trunk Lines, Terminal and Short lines, Suburban, City Transit, and Power Generation while always asking the question “Why go Electric and what are the public benefits?” and how this form of transportation has been a vital catalyst contributing to Iowa’s growing populace from the turn of the century going forward.
