MNNR Local Rolling Through Roseville (MN)

Postby SOO2719 » Sun Jun 07, 2020 6:10 pm

A stretch of ex-Northern Pacific track is now operated by the Minnesota Commercial Railroad. Three times a week, they send a local out along this line bound for customers in Little Canada, White Bear Lake, and Hugo, MN. I caught this local today. Here are the pictures.

Engine 49 is a former Chesapeake and Ohio B-37 from the Chessie System days. The Chessie System! Oh what a paint job they had, my friends. :)

Here are the last two. These were taken on a picturesque stretch of the old NP down by the grade crossing on Lake Owasso Boulevard South.
