Last Shot
Title:  Last Shot
Description:  Here the Ford Hauler crosses Orrin Avenue right after crossing Otto. This was my last shot as daylight could no longer be coaxed along by the flash setting. All I could was watch and then take notes after it rolled downhill into Fordson Junction and on to Pigs Eye Yard.

I pity you...
Title:  I pity you...
Description:  I honestly feel bad for the conductor on this days Ford Hauler. He feels that by sticking a broom out of the cab and 'trying' to ruin a shot, that it will give him sort of good feeling. If anything, it makes the shot more interesting to me! Human element. :D Jokes on you buddy! In other news, a massive Hauler comes up towards the plant with a single GT boxcar and a long train of empty racks. The plan shut down the day before, but there are hundreds of Rangers to still be shipped out. 12-17-2011

Round Yet Another Cruve
Title:  Round Yet Another Cruve
Description:  The MN&S Spur twists and turns through the inner western suburbs of Minneapolis like a jointed steel rail conga line. Today this curve by Brunswick Avenue in SLP is bearing the weight of the CP/SOO local which is returning to Humbolt Yard after interchanging with Progressive Rail at Nesbit Siding in Bloomington.

On Past The Power Poles
Title:  On Past The Power Poles
Description:  It is interesting how a major power line is routed down the MN&S Spur for most of the stretch of track through SLP. Here the northbound CP/Soo local passes by them with one car of interchange from Progressive Rail in Bloomington. Dig how the Soo Line's own "4449" is still wearing Soo livery at this late date! Note my own "motive power" at the far right background.

Description:  The northbound CP/Soo local tip toes along the jointed rail of the MN&S Spur as it passes Brunswick Avenue on its trip north to Humbolt Yard in Minneapolis with a lone loaded gondola the sole northbound interchange from Progressive Rail this day. I tried catching it once more up in Golden Valley, but by then the train had given me the slip.

Title:  Double Yes!
Description:  The grade crossing of the MN&S spur on Excelsior Boulevard in SLP has been a place I've always wanted to catch a train at. Finally, I got to. Here we see the northbound CP local which interchanges with Progressive Rail down in Bloomington about to cross Excelsior in a scene fit for a model railroad.

Yes!
Title:  Yes!
Description:  We are just south of Excelsior Boulevard on the Canadian Pacific Soo Line MN&S Spur (the former main line of the Minneapolis, Northfield, and Southern railroad), a place I've always wanted to photograph a train at. Lo and behold: by pure luck I finally got to do that! Here comes the northbound CP local which serves Nesbit Siding in Bloomington where CP interchanges with Progessive Rail, operator of the former MN&S "High Line." Today only one loaded gondola is making the return trip to Humbolt Yard.
