Photo essay about surviving CGW track in Faribault, MN

Postby MILW261 » Sat Nov 03, 2012 12:56 pm

1.4 miles of ex-Chicago Great Western track survive in operation in Faribault, Minnesota thanks to plentiful on-line industry that made the Chicago and North Western keep serving customers even after the line out of town on both ends was abandoned.
I recently posted a photo essay about this line to a train blog of mine. The link is: http://www.tonyheld.hoboandbowser.net/t ... faribault/
Enjoy.
