Re: Twin City Light Rail Woes

Hi Tom,

Regarding the second article (was that the one giving you trouble?), basically, the cost of putting in a tunnel along the portion of the route that bisects Lake of the Isles and Cedar Lake has gone up in cost due to problems with groundwater.

Re: Canandian Pacific 2816

I sure wish Canadian Pacific would bring 2816 back for good. I saw her a few times when she ventured south of the border. Here is "The Empress" rolling through Loretto, Minnesota, with an excursion on September 8, 2007. CP 4-6-4 2816 the Empress with helper diesel and train Loretto Septemb...
