Remarks & Notes 
While much of Duluth rising in the background has changed over the years, the most striking transformation has been on the grassy ground in the foreground. Once full of tracks and cars, known as the Bridge Yard, it now sits unused save for the NSSR lead and Cutler Salt (Skunk) track. What was once bustling with transfers and trains is now filled with billboards and the I35 freeway built in the 1980's. If you look below the Radisson, one of Duluth's most well known restaurants that features a 360 degree constantly rotating restaurant on its top level, you will see the general area where trains used to use a tunnel to access the beautiful Soo Line Depot. Trains still access the famed North Shore of Lake Superior, but railroad infrastructure of the early to mid 1900's is all but a distant memory...
