Milwaukee Road 261 returned to operation last year following a thorough rebuild with a jaunt up to the North Shore Scenic Railroad in Duluth. Plenty of railfans were on hand to welcome back the big Northern. For many of us, this was also a (hopefully temporary) goodbye to handsome Soo Line Pacific 2719, whose flue time expired last year. Here's hoping we get a chance to see these two together again soon.
A growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads in the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (I still find new "Lights In The Night"!)
