    Here is one of my ideas, setup a railfan page for seperate areas where members are. I live in Saint Paul, but think I could expand this into a MN thread. so here goes, I had some pics in an earlier thread, and here are a few more, they arent the best, but there was little action and I was not dressed for the cold. The first pics are of a CP loco, some ballast hoppers and a Minnesota commercial railroad ALCO and what I believe is still their only slug. I had a great video clip of the Alco passing under the bridge, but I lost it when my camera battery door opened when it wasn supposed to. Now its your turn to add to my thread and/or start your own appropriate thread.

    I have heard about the MN Comm. RR in my MN railfan book, but never seen it before. On my second real Railfan trip, I saw one in action, and after looking it up in their book, I am very interested in it, I took a trip to Hub Hobby today, and found a MN Comm in ho by atlas, I think Ill look for N scale, it would make for a PERFECT shelf layout. I have even found a video on it, and want to get it. ​
