Trains, glorious trains. This beastie is sitting quietly in one of the many railyards in the Twin Cites; specifically one next to a round house just off I-94 in St. Paul. It always amazes me how many freaking railyards there are and how many there used to be. Like looking for ancient meteor craters, you can find them on google satellite maps and see the familiar shape (long wedge shapes near tracks) with new buildings, sometimes town-homes or a shopping center.
I love how the face of ol’ number 4711 iridesces in the morning light, must be something in the paint as it fades.
Have a great week, it’s warming up in Minneapolis and Mitchs are much more active when it’s warm. Watch for your daily photo here and please, look both ways before crossing the tracks.
