Always something on the move at Northtown.
A derailment the night before between Orr and Cusson left 14 cars on the ground. This SD38AC is assembling a train to clear the tracks and get the rails back in position.
On hopper day at Rice's Point, the million dollar view from Skyline Drive.
Always something to see at Northtown.
Just off the plane, I scoot to Northtown. The SD60s are being moved around. Six to the Susquehanna, a bunch to Canadian National. After this spin on the turntable, who knows where 9019 is heade... (more)
What I did on my Summer vacation: Always something new at Selkirk. Anyone know exactly what this antenna on this SD40-2?

A brisk February afternoon at Proctor Yard.
A busy Sunday morning at Selkirk with lots of power shuffling around.
Two SD40-2s and a TEBC6 head off for hump duty as storms surround the Twin Cities.
On a clear day atop Skyline drive, you can see for miles and miles and miles and miles. Oh yea, and the Rice's Point switchers working the evening shift.
A new coat of paint with a swoosh for this Rotary. I guess with the lack of heavy snowfall this winter, some of the snow removal budget went to the paint shop. Looks great!
BNSF transfer job gets underway headed to Superior via the Grassy Point Draw.
I am heading Up North in April. I guess nostaglia got the better of me.
