The NTWLIN manifest heads south out of Granite Falls, passing some horses. The river valley looks quite stunning from this vantage point.
The daily NTWLIN manifest heads south into Raymond on the Marshall Sub with a 5 pack of GEVOs, including a 25th anniversary unit 4th out.
BNSF 7950, 4235, & 9056 lead a westbound manifest.
With the Station Sign lit up to contrast the dark side of the train... a crew member steps out to set the brakes. It'll be a while before another crew is ready to take this train west.
A semi-side shot of a SD40-2R compared to a SD40-2. Glad I went out to bag this sucker. The weeds and embankment of the railbed are all between the narrows of Cass Lake and Pike Bay.
I counted at least 6 other railfans chasing this train through Saginaw. It is moving away (north bound) in this shot. It eventually came back south and went on to North Yard.
Fresh out of Mid America Car this SD40-2R is headed for the interchange with the KCS on Thanksgiving morning
