Flashback Friday - Nemadji River

One thing about the Soo's purchase of the Milwaukee Road, it did motivate me to shoot more trains with orange and black power (given we had so few in the Twin Ports, it was a tough assignment).

All Gone Today
In late March 1986 there was still a hint of snow on the ground just south of BN's Nemadji River crossing as a pair of Milwaukee Road SD40-2s (205/207) lead a train of DW&P interchange traffic towards St. Paul. Of all the Milwaukee Road books, so few showcase their operations in the Twin Ports with the exception of units idling at Rices Point.
