Remarks & Notes 
Of all the locations along the Minnesota Prairie Line between Morton and Delhi, this is the one that's eluded me the most. I've got one other picture from here of an eastbound a few years ago, but it was running with only one unit long hood forward. There have been several challenges to repeating it. Obviously, it takes an eastbound train running at the right time of day on a sunny morning. That in itself is a rare treat. Additionally, the wet weather of the last few years had caused the lake level to rise in the spring, turning this whole area into a muddy bog. With our stretch of drier weather this spring/summer, the opportunity was back to walk in to this location. So when I heard that an eastbound was moving from North Redwood on this morning, I knew exactly where I was going to try to see it. There are lots of rare shots I've got on this stretch of railroad, but this one is probably the rarest: an eastbound with grain loads from Delhi and North Redwood crosses the wooden trestle over Sulphur Lake just west of Morton. Put this one in the win column.
