Taken from the Robert Street bridge.
These trains are long and slow. Nothing to do as they block the road but photograph them.
The buildings in the back ground are part of the union Depot which is being restored and will be used as a passenger train station again. I need to get closer for some more pictures. This is what I can see from the bike path along the river.
Down on water street just a few feet from the Mississippi River. The bike trail ends just before the bridge and starts again just after and there is just enough space between the supports for a car and a bike. Â It all looks so old and rickety it is kind of creepy riding under it when there is a train on it.
Hennepin Avenue in downtown Minneapolis. This station is on the Hiawatha line.
I was out taking a walk and I got side tracked (bad pun) I love trains. I am even thinking about taking a train to Chicago instead of driving or flying because I think it would be nice to have a few hours of uninterrupted time to work on some projects I need to finish and I think it would be nice to not have to go to the airport and have my baggage handled.
