Welcome to my 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 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
a little more recently.
During a recent Amtrak Cascades visit to Portland, I came
across PNWC 600,
the former SP&S Mount Hood in Empire Builder dress basking in
Mount Hood is a 6 roomette, 3 double bedroom, buffet lounge
car built for
the Portland to Spokane section of the EB. It is stored
near the OMSI Science Center in Portland, Oregon. Also,
the above tongue
and groove board with part of the famous GN "Rocky" logo,
my collection and was acquired at a recent local swap meet.
Revisit Mark Meyer's recently updated treatise
