Title

Ames & College Railway traveling through campus.

Description

The Ames & College Railway (The Dinkey) is traveling through a portion of campus. The trees lining the tracks partially obscure a building. Many passengers are seating in the train cars.
The Ames & College Railway, better known as the Dinkey, provided transportation between the City of Ames, Iowa and the Iowa Agricultural College (Iowa State University).� As a joint venture of Ames and the College, the Dinkey began operating on July 4, 1891. The Ames & College Railway was sold to the Fort Dodge, Des Moines and Southern Railroad in 1907. That year the Dinkey was replaced with an electric streetcar, known as the interurban.
