Crane Caboose and MOW Flat
Title:  Crane Caboose and MOW Flat
Description:  When I first moved to Long Lake, Brown Road morphed into Lake Street at a grade crossing on the BNSF Wayzata sub. There was a spur track at this location used to park MOW trains. Today I found this job parked here with a plum prize in the middle: A BN caboose. Sans herald, to be sure, but still otherwise just like the ones I saw in revenue service on this line when I was a boy back during the BN caboose's mid-1980's last stand.

UP GP38-2L 398 and Crossbuck.
Title:  UP GP38-2L 398 and Crossbuck.
Description:  Union Pacific usually assigns diesels in pairs to work their Golden Valley Industrial Lead (the part of the old Minnesota Western/Minneapolis & St. Louis route out to Hutchinson that was not torn up by the North Western and turned later into the Luce Line trail). Out on a fine Indian Summer November day is Union Pacific GP38-2L 398 and a sister unit completing their day's switching at track's end just past Xenium Lane in Plymouth before grabbing their cars and going home. The crossbuck was too good an element for me to pass up in the composition. Note Plymouth's landmark communications tower in the upper left corner.

BNSF Eastbound Unit Coal Train
Title:  BNSF Eastbound Unit Coal Train
Description:  There goes former BN SD60M 9284 and BNSF Warbonnet SD75M 8297 on the point of an eastbound unit coal train in Long Lake beneath grey March skies. The contrast between the Cascade Green and the red and silver is quite colorful, and a treat for the eye. Of course, if they had moved the BNSF tracks over any further, we would have street running in this part of town! The train is on the new alignment that allowed MNDOT to take over the old GN right of way for their Highway 12 bypass.

Title:  BNSF GP60M 108 arriving on hind end of 261 excursion.
Description:  The H-II paint on BNSF GP60M 108 goes rather nicely with the orange maroon and silver on Milwaukee Road Skytop observation car Cedar Rapids. 108 is arriving in town first due to 261 running in reverse out to Wayzata before the first day's trip to Minneapolis Junction. See my "Steam Trains" album for shots of 261 from this day.

Ouch!
Title:  Ouch!
Description:  Yowza! Will you look at that. Looks like Paul Bunyan put his hand around it and squeezed. My my... I found this whilst riding up the Dinkytown trench near the U of M coal plant. These tracks used to serve the Pillsburg A Mill and went over the Stone Arch bridge. Now the Minnesota Commercial stores cars and serves the coal plant on them.

Dual-Flags On The Midway Sub
Title:  Dual-Flags On The Midway Sub
Description:  I think this is a train from Duluth/Superior, but it could also be the CP-BNSF Northtown transfer. Whatever job it was I caught this day, here it is rolling down the old NP main. Now the BNSF Midway subdivision. The bridge carrying the U of M transitway over the line is in the distance. Beyond that, the Saints stadium.
