Three GE's exit the tunnel on Main 1 at Westminster with train 490.
BNSF 6320 can't be more then a couple of months old as it leads a Dash 9 and a heavy Northtown-Galsburg manifest down Main 2 at Newport.
CP 199 can be fairly reliable for an afternoon run up the river. With that in mind, 45 minutes later Nick Benson and I were at the top of this bluff. It was well worth the hike.
WPSX coal empties ease around the river and the bluff at Maple Springs. I have a new found respect for anyone who attempts this shot as the hike is not easy. Thank goes out to Nick Benson for th... (more)
A fishermen heads for home or a new spot as he departs the bay in his speed boat. CP 291 is westbound with one unit in charge. They'll meet an 882 coal load at Duke before continuing to St. Paul... (more)
SP 4449 leaves the Minneapolis skyline in a cloud of steam and smoke. The train is just under way as they embark on the last trip of the weekend down the Mississippi River.
It's been several months since CP has taken over, but blue and yellow is still holding strong as the daily Kansas City-St. Paul manifest rolls on at Maple Springs.

LTB84 rolls past downtown with cars for Valley Park. It's hard not to want to work the Robert Street Lift bridge into the shot, even when they're not using it.
CP 891 pulls down to Roseport behind a pair of former CNW SD60's. I imagine these two traveled these rails several times back in the day.
SD60's are a rare commodity in these parts. About the only train you will see them on are these coke trains as the INRD is leasing them. Being that this train originated on that railroad, their ... (more)
Three SD40-2's lead the BNCP Transfer west at Seventh Street with 93 cars for Northtown. This is a busy location as both the St. Paul and Midway Subs come to together.
A pair of CSX units lead a BNSF ethanol train past CP's Pigseye Yard.
Running right on time, AMTK 8 rolls off the hill into downtown Saint Paul with the usual.
