Family Portrait by DDL-Photography Family Portrait by DDL-Photography
June 16, 2012

On a late spring afternoon, a Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern and Illinois, Chicago & Eastern consist sit on a siding in Inver Grove Heights, MN.

With these two railroads being merged in the Canadian Pacific Railroad, shots like this without a CP unit intruding are getting increasingly harder to catch. Not to mention rumors are floating around that CP is regretting the decision on purchasing these two railroads and are looking to sell them. So who knows what the future holds for these two locomotives, but that's the railroading scene with nothing being the same each day.

The locomotives on this trains are:

DM&E 6080 SD40-3 "City of Tracy"

IC&E 6405 SD40-2 "City of Alpha"

I appreciate that John! I actually waited on the lighting for this shot by heading up to the yards in St. Paul to keep busy. I'm just happy a crew didn't swing by and take the train while I was gone!
