Nice. Wish I could make one of those trips, but I do not know if I can.
261 would take the Staples Sub to Fargo, correct?

I don't know how we'll go there, but I sort of suspect out the TC&W to the Red River - There's a line there that goes by a name like RRV&W or something like that which leases track owned by BNSF, unless it's been sold to the RRV&W which I think is owned by TC&W. But don't take what I say as truth. It's a guess all the way.

You all went by the Wayzata Sub I see, at least going out there. I wish I was around to photograph you all going through Long Lake. Oh well, I will be riding the fall colors, so it's all good.

Yeah, sorry about that. By the time I knew which way we were going it was too late to get it posted here.
