UP 1498
Title:  UP 1498
Description:  I had planned to go to the Mankato Library, which was located by the tracks just to read the paper and hope a train would come by. I got bored of waiting so I left the library and went to the old depot to wait for some action. Still, nothing. I spotted this locomotive parked in the grain mill yard. I walked a few blocks over to get pictures of it and it was well worth the walk. I think this engine would look better without the patches however.

Stuck The Old Neck Out For This One
Title:  Stuck The Old Neck Out For This One
Description:  I had to sneak down to get this shot of the 1498 by the downtown New Prague grain elevator as it wasn't up by the depot like I'd hoped. I admit I stuck my neck out but I got away with it. Oddly enough, a derailer was set up ahead of the unit! What for I have no clue.
