Sunday afternoon in the Ports

Got out for a little while Sunday afternoon. The late afternoon light was too hard to pass on so I headed for Skyline Parkway. Seems like Rice's Point has been used for staging tank cars lately. The cars were casting some long shadows.

Here is a broader view as well.

Here is the reason I went out, a pair of SOO geeps in Duluth, hard to believe this still occurs in 2010.

I figured as long I was close, I'd grab a few shots of these old SOO boxcars in Birch Street Yard, I think they belong to the E&LS.

Did a few close ups of the cars, the trucks have Soo Lines cast into them.

You can make out Griffin and St. Paul through the grime on a few of the wheel faces.

And a B&W of the brakewheel.

On the way home I managed to get a shot of these geeps working 28th Street Yard, the EMDX unit is starting to show it's age through the paint.
