The Waterloo, Cedar Falls, & Northern Railway operated for over fifty years and impacted many lives during its existence. Even now, people can recall the conductor on ‘their’ car, or talk about riding the ‘trolley’ to college. Farmers rode the northern Iowa rail to town to sell their produce and factories in Waterloo shipped by the Cedar Valley Road.
Read the history and the memories of those Cedar Valley, Iowa residents who rode the interurban in the new book The Cedar Valley Road by Linda Betsinger McCann.
Linda Betsinger McCann is a native Iowan and proud of it. She grew up in the Bremer County area and can remember playing on the streetcar at Exchange Park in Waterloo as a kid.
She is currently researching Linn County and will soon complete her next book Lost Bremer County the third in her series of Vanished Towns of the Cedar Valley.
