Milwaukee Road 261 Details
Title:  Milwaukee Road 261 Details
Description:  Outside of the cab, with Frank's name proudly displayed in memory of him being the original engineer of this locomotive. His grandson, Steve, is currently running this locomotive. It's amazing to me that this engine has been "kept in the family" after all the years.

Departing Minneapolis

Description:  Standing on the Hennepin Ave. bridge to get this shot. Not a good idea when the steam completely covers you and you have no where to go!

Milwaukee Road 261 Speeding By
Title:  Milwaukee Road 261 Speeding By
Description:  The money shot. This was actually an accident. The camera was so slow and I was trying to get a shot of the front of it, but the delay of the camera made this instead. I was panning with it hoping for just any shot and this came out. One of my favorites!
