Soo Line locomotive pictures.

I remember that someone here likes Soo Line stuff, and we just took some photos of a Soo Line diesel at the former Soo yard in Enderlin, ND. To top that off, there were two UP diesels there as well.

I like the Canadian grain cars in the background.

As for me, I like SOO Line and UP too.
Hope Andrey Norkin will produce one SD45 for me painted as SOO Line (although it will be not 100% historically correct)

Here is a photo of ex-Soo Line 0-6-0 #353 at Rollag, MN, during the Western Minnesota Steam Thresher's Reunion:

Am I odd for being much more interested in the boxcar than the steamer?

One side of the boxcars on the train is removed, only the bracing remains. There is seating much like that in a theater inside, allowing for a lot of people to ride the train, which travels in a large oval layout, with a spur leading towards the turntable and roundhouse. In short it is basically a full size basic layout. There is also a a pair of ex-Danbury Terminal Railroad (they served around Danbury, CT which is not far from New York City which has a rather nice railroad museum of it's own) 0-4-0s, #3 (operational), and #5, which is a parts reserve for #3 and can be found in pieces around the roundhouse area.

At least one of the boxcars so fitted for passengers used to be used as a grain boxcar and still bears load lines on the inside to prove it.

Here are some more photos of the steam train at Rollag, MN.

One side of the cars is left as-is, and the other has been "opened up", with stairs leading into the car built in.

The boiler from 0-4-0 ex-DTR #5 can be seen here:
