The City of Algona leads the City of Buffalo on a Nahant, IA to St. Paul, MN freight. Wacouta is located in a valley carved out by an old channel of the Mississippi River.
No afternoon trip to the River Sub would be complete without an appearance from CP 199, seen here south of Red Wing, MN.
I spent four hours waiting on the side of the road in the rain, and all that came by was CP 199. Lousy economy. The signs read "45 FEET BETWEEN TRACKS & HIGHWAY" and "USE NEXT CROSSING."
