Welcome to Great Northern Railway Page! My name is
I have been a big fan of James
Hill's Great Northern Railway
from an early age. The black & white
photo from October 1960 is my
Mark, me and my Dad
watching the Empire
portal of the Seattle tunnel. That's
also me trying on
my new GN conductor's
a little more recently.
Rhapsody in Blue! Great Northern's Empire Builder
pauses for its portrait in Glacier National Park. GN's
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,
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.
