May 1956 Modern Railroads Magazine
The Modern Great Northern
Part Two

Thanks to Gary Muehlius and Chuck Hatler, I was able to get a copy of this long-out-of-print magazine.  It is packed with stories and data on the GN from the "glory days" of 1956.

WARNING:  These are BIG .jpg files (200k to 400k) and may take a while to download (especially if you're on a dial-up connection).  Click on the thumbnailed picture to view the page of your choice.  Below each picture is a brief description.
