MNNR 88 and 75 parked by the sand tower
Title:  MNNR 88 and 75 parked by the sand tower
Description:  I didn't have a whole lot of time for railfanning in the Twin Cities when I went there with my girlfriend for a 2-night getaway, but I wanted to make it a point to at least glimpse this unique shortline with its roster of old 4-axle GE (and even a few ALCo) units that most other railroads have long since gotten rid of.

MNNR 43 and 42 are now holding court at the sand tower
Title:  MNNR 43 and 42 are now holding court at the sand tower
Description:  Too bad more of 42 wasn't visible. This unit is apparently a one-off rebuild by Santa Fe of a U-boat to Dash 7 specifications.

MNNR 75 trundles toward the Transfer Road underpass
Title:  MNNR 75 trundles toward the Transfer Road underpass
Description:  Stopped by Wednesday evening in the hope of seeing one of Minnesota Commercial's rare GEs (or if I was REALLY lucky, an ALCo) in motion before leaving the Twin Cities. 75 was switching in the area between the roundhouse and yard.

MNNR 50 and the rooftops of a few other units barely visible in the yard
Title:  MNNR 50 and the rooftops of a few other units barely visible in the yard
Description:  Like the 42, this is a Santa Fe rebuild of a GE U-boat, this time a six-axle (U36C) to Dash 7 (C30-7) specifications. However these were more successful with 70 built, unlike the one-off four axle unit.
