GN 122 and the 3rd street NP switch tender
Title:  GN 122 and the 3rd street NP switch tender
Description:  Perhaps the 3rd street NP switch tender is lining switches for this Great Northern transfer that is coming down the hill from Westminister Tower--- the real question here is where are they going and with whom will they be interchanging cars today?! This is just north of the NP commissary and coach yard on the north end of the "St Paul wye". Maybe they are going thru the St Paul Union Depot (which had 23 tracks &was shared by 8 different railroads) and over the Mississippi River drawbridge at Robert Street and then to the Chicago Great Western at State street or maybe to "the Omaha" at the NSP high bridge power plant! I would like to believe that they will be going east to Division Street on the CB&Q and then to Hoffman Avenue on the Milwaukee Road at St Paul Yard! There is perhaps no way to know--- the real point here is that in those days there were many different railroads and lots of different jobs and places to work unlike today!
