Iowa Northern Railway Company, headquartered in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is one of the most-recognized short line railroads in the United States. The Company operates over 250 miles of rail in northeastern Iowa, with a main line track running from Manly to Cedar Rapids (through Waterloo/Cedar Falls) as well as several branch lines that connect to the main track. Given its geographic location, IANR primarily serves customers in the corn and ethanol end markets, many of whom operate adjacent to the railroad. The Company also provides transportation to customers in agriculture, energy, and manufacturing and offers value-add services to Class I railroads.
