    Ralph Remember...it's for fun!

    Im taking the last three days of this week off so yesterday I decided to finally visit the Minnesota Transportation Museum's Jackson St. Roundhouse site in St. Paul where they have displays in the old roundhouse, along with several pieces of equipment including the Great Northern SD45 "Hustle Muscle" that was the first of its kind from EMD. Best of all, while outside looking at the turntable one of the volunteers asked if I'd like to walk on and take a spin. Not a fast ride but fun to say I've been on one!
    Here's a link to the museums....
