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.
Rocky lives! If you know where to look, there are still
of the old Great Northern Railway to be admired. Above, we
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
road trip to Montana, closely following the former GN Ry.

trip celebration. From the esoteric cuisine of New Orleans to a
cross-country journey on Amtrak, Baolu and I had a great time.
