Andy Shireman General It's the Minnetonka Zephyr!! I think that stopped running in 1988. 11/10/2007 8:46:29 PM
Joe Musolf General What was the deal with the Minnesota Zephyr anyway? 12/22/2008 11:01:14 PM
Robert Ball General Dave Paradeau who ran the Minnetonka Zephyr had a dispute with Jerry Ross, the owner of Dakota Rail, and moved the train to Stillwater MN and re-pianted and re-named the train, the Minnesota Zephyr. He leased the tracks from the Minnesota Transportation Museum for a very low price and then bought the tracks after MTM left for Osceola WI. Jerry Ross repainted one of his engines and ran a dinner train on his own for a while. 1/21/2010 6:45:06 PM
