Train Crossing the Midtown Greenway

Train Crossing the Midtown Greenway

I love the network of trails in Minneapolis! The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy tries to convert abandoned railroad right-of-ways to trails, but here in Minneapolis the trails share them. Around mid-morning, the trains are very active as the cross-country trains come in and the trans-yard trains begin the daily shuffle. This guy is from the Twin Cities and Western (TC&W), the morning train usually has three engines, which isn’t that interesting, but I looked up their website and found that they only have eight of them, so it’s almost half of all their motive power.  It’s fun being a geek in the land of infinite information…

I love summer on the prairie…
