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.

Rocky lives!  If you know where to look, there are still traces
of the old Great Northern Railway to be admired.  Above, we find
GN #181, an EMD NW-3 with Blomberg trucks on display at the
Whitefish, Montana Depot.  GN #181 had an interesting career
appearing on passenger trains as it was steam generator-equipped.

I recently took my 2017 Toyota Tacoma ("Old Blue") on its first long
road trip to Montana, closely following the former GN Ry. 

CLICK HERE or on the big locomotive above to read about my
June 2021 train-spotting expedition.

Update:  CLICK HERE to read about my October 2021 retirement
trip celebration. From the esoteric cuisine of New Orleans to a
cross-country journey on Amtrak, Baolu and I had a great time.
