Title:  out on the main track
Description:  where ever it was that they were going to or coming from, I dont now remember as it was a very long time ago! But you can see the Soo Line bridge and the Grove Yard engine working at 35th Avenue!

leave him alone
Title:  leave him alone
Description:  maybe someday he will hire out and then I can go on vacation! So it was in those days, when rail fans were not something about which anyone worried all that much! Maybe there were not that many of us and often times we were the next guys that the railroad hired!

East 3
Title:  East 3
Description:  nice caboose and typical of the transfer cabooses that I often saw around St Paul. When they came back from the GN or the NP, they usually came home with 2 cabooses on the rear! But that is a whole other story!

Can I be in the picture
Title:  Can I be in the picture
Description:  They know me because I have been there before. I have talked with the crew and they know why we are there and what it is that we are doing! Because of this, they are friendly to us and so they seem not to mind being in the picture! Usually they have two engines back to back, one facing east and one facing west! I really like days like today when there is only one running like this! Great Picture?! Well I sure think so!

GN 122 and the 3rd street NP switch tender
Title:  GN 122 and the 3rd street NP switch tender
Description:  Perhaps the 3rd street NP switch tender is lining switches for this Great Northern transfer that is coming down the hill from Westminister Tower--- the real question here is where are they going and with whom will they be interchanging cars today?! This is just north of the NP commissary and coach yard on the north end of the "St Paul wye". Maybe they are going thru the St Paul Union Depot (which had 23 tracks &was shared by 8 different railroads) and over the Mississippi River drawbridge at Robert Street and then to the Chicago Great Western at State street or maybe to "the Omaha" at the NSP high bridge power plant! I would like to believe that they will be going east to Division Street on the CB&Q and then to Hoffman Avenue on the Milwaukee Road at St Paul Yard! There is perhaps no way to know--- the real point here is that in those days there were many different railroads and lots of different jobs and places to work unlike today!
