run thru power  Contributor's Pick!       
Between the interlocking towers of St Anthony on the west end of the 4 track GN main and St Anthony Park on the double track NP main (not to be confused with Park Jct and the Minnesota Transfer crossing)--- I felt lucky to catch this set of run thru power on the Union Cutoff. As to why this transfer from Daytons Bluff came up the NP and then went thru the Union Cutoff at St Anthony Park instead of coming west on the GN freight mains from Westminster Tower is beyond me! So where was St Anthony Park and the Union Cutoff you ask?! Just west of the state fair grounds and Snelling Avenue where the circus trains used to unload and maybe still do today.
