Minneapolis Daily Photo BlogA photo outpost on the edge of the great western prairie, Minneapolis Daily Photoblog records life in the beautiful rugged northern land of Minnesota. Minneapolis is a bustling metropolis with beautiful greenspaces, rivers and truly epic winters. This unique city was created by the railroad and lumber barons in the wild frontier leaving lots of awesomely rusty hulks and quiet wooded corridors to photograph.
0Minnesota Commercial Railroad is a local Transload line that handles loads from the Hiawatha Corridor (shown here) to Fridley and the Twin Cities Arsenal. For you hard-core train nuts, have I got a deal for you! The Minnesota Commercial Railroad is selling an old EMD 567 Engine. She's a fixer-upper, but imagine putting a 1350 horse-power motor in the middle of your living room — one heck of a conversation starter. Check out that track; it's fun to watch a 250-ton yard switcher lazily wobble down these mangled rails.
