Northown Yard at Night
Title:  Northown Yard at Night
Description:  A picture taken from 33rd Ave bridge looking north. Taken around 9:00 PM. Sad to think that the Soo Line Bridge will replaced in just a few weeks. One can only imagine what the bridge has seen since it was built in 1911. BNSF 7821 waits for a train to depart before pulling out its cut of cars.
