What's New



Welcome to Great Northern Railway Page!
My name is Lindsay Korst.

I have been a big fan of James Jerome Hill's Great Northern Railway
from an early age.  The black & white photo from October 1960 is my
brother Mark, me and my Dad watching the Empire Builder emerge
from the north portal of the Seattle tunnel. That's also me trying on
my new GN conductor's hat a little more recently.

Rhapsody in Blue!  Great Northern's Empire Builder (circa 1967)
pauses for its portrait in Glacier National Park.  GN's traffic
department put together a complete Big Sky Blue consist
from SDP45's to Great Domes and posed the passenger train
amongst Montana's magnificent mountains.  I always liked the
blue.  Unfortunately, it followed the spectacular orange, green
and gold stripe scheme, so it never really caught on.

Hey, guess what?  Baolu and I celebrated my 60th birthday
with a fabulous trip on Amtrak.  CLICK HERE or on the blue
train above to read all about it.
