Mankato bound
Title:  Mankato bound
Description:  One of the main intechange points with the CNW was at Makato, about 25 miles to the west. This train, WAMAA, is rolling 31 cars there behind an interesting set of power, including one of the MILW only SDL39s. We see it here getting unnderway from Waseca.

SDL39
Title:  SDL39
Description:  Milwaukee Road ordered these SDL39s, a version of EMDs 39 line on pared down C trucks, designed to lighten the axle load on the light rail branch lines in the system. MILW got ten of them, the only such order in the US. They wound up on DM&E at start up. I was lucky to catch one in the yard at Waseca. It would go out shortly on a train to Mankato.

What a set of power
Title:  What a set of power
Description:  This 31 car WAMAA has a power set you wont find anywhere today. It was pretty wild even then. The second unit is the real find. Only ten SDL39s were built, all for MILW. It was a slimmed down version of the SD 39, designed for light rail on prairie branch lines. Here its stretching its legs a little on this run to Mankato.

Rolling right along
Title:  Rolling right along
Description:  Unlike the line to Mason City, the line to Mankato was in somewhat better shape. Chasing on then two lane US 14 was a bit of a challenge in traffic, but I was still able to get a couple of shots before the construction forced a detour. This one shows the train stretched out as it rolls through the farmland just out of the yard in Waseca
