On Tour

At this posting the Viewliner Limited is on tour celebrating National Train Day. We'll be back soon! RIDE THE TRAIN and TAKE THE TIME to see AMERICA !!!

Northern Pacific Railway EMD F9 - Stone Arch Bridge - Minneapolis, Minnesota, April, 1968 - The Mainstreeter moves out on to Stone Arch Bridge, heading east from Minneapolis to St. Paul. It is showing that the end is near for Class I-operated passenger service. Although BN will continue the train, it will terminate in St. Paul instead of Chicago starting in 1970, and will not be carried on by Amtrak after the 1971 takeover. This bridge is also no longer in service as a rail bridge. (Photo Credit: Jim Hinkhouse on RailPictures.Net)

That's a beautiful stone bridge, they don't make 'em like that anymore...

Hope you enjoy your time off!

Today it is a pedestrian bridge and still such an iconic treasure of the past.
