A Great Northern freight train pulled by a Big Sky Blue SD45 and U33C heads west at Fargo, North Dakota. Today's train carries grain from the Great Plains headed to the Port of Seattle. The locomotives and the train's many freight cars and caboose are adorned by Great Northern's beloved mascot "Rocky the Goat."
Great Northern helped develop Glacier National Park, and was known for the scenic beauty along its right of way. Great Northern is part of today's +BNSF Railway.
As a young railroad artist, I was truly lucky to be one of the faithful at trackside when the 1522 double-headed with the Norfolk and Western 611 on its way to the National Railway Historical Society convention in Atlanta in 1994. That was truly a once in a lifetime experience.
See the Frisco #1522 on display at the National Museum of Transportation in St. Louis.
