BNSF 9843 leads a coal train out of St. Paul, Minnesota down a very cold and ice covered Mississippi River past Lock and Dam #2 near Hastings. Lock and Dam #2 was built original built in 1907. Following construction, the original lock walls settled and began to lean out of alignment, so a replacement lock was built. It was finished in 1948. A rehabilitation phase ran from 1987 to 1995. In 2009, Lock and Dam No. 2 became home to the nation's first commercial, Federally-licensed hydrokinetic power facility, which is a partnership between the City of Hastings and Hydro Green Energy, LLC of Westmont, IL.
