Review of Minnesotas Railroads Vol 2 - St Croix Valley and Minnesota Northern

 5 of 5 (1)
Join C. Vision Productions as we capture the action of short line and regional railroads operating in the land of 10,000 lakes!

In this volume, we feature the St. Croix Valley and the Minnesota Northern.

The St. Croix Valley Railroad runs on a portion of the ex-Northern Pacific Skally line that once ran from the Twin Cities to Duluth and Superior. We follow this railroad as it heads from its headquarters in Rush City to North Branch to retrieve loaded fertilizer cars. Then the train heads north to Hinckley to interchange its freight with the BNSF. You will then be amazed as we view the St. Croix Valley's green GP-9 pulling a private passenger car from Pine City to Rush City.

Then we head to the far northwestern part of the state and follow the Minnesota Northern. From Erskin, we ride along in the Minnesota Northern's caboose over the Canadian Pacific's tracks to Thief River Falls. After passing the historic Thief River Falls Depot, we follow the train and its GP-9
