I didn't know that Iowa banned side door waycars. The CB&Q had them, and used them on several branch lines, so I'd like to know the year the State of Iowa banned them. I was planning to build one for my Burlington-Washington branch.

The IC used side door cabooses on every division on the line except for Iowa where they were banned by state law.  Some of them ran well past the end date of this list and made it into orange paint after 1967.
