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
Mark, me and my Dad
watching the Empire
emerge from the
portal of the Seattle tunnel. That's
me trying on
my new GN conductor's
a little more recently.
Rocky lives! If you know where to look, there are still
of the old Great Northern Railway to be admired. On a
to Walla Walla, Baolu and I spotted this former Great Northern
Mountain Series observation car.
GN #1293 Cathedral
Mountain is off its trucks and in use
(of all things) as a ski shop. Update: I recently revisited
the Kootenai Subdivision of
BNSF and saw a plethora
of trains. CLICK HERE to check it out.
