North Dakota

Soo Line
Minot, North Dakota
June 15, 1972

Sometimes it's just all about luck. The photographer was riding Amtrak's eastbound Empire Builder from Washington state, and during the Minot, North Dakota station stop heard a rumble and had just enough time to grab the camera and get this and the next shot of a westbound freight led by SD no. 741 and companions 733 and 721 on the Soo Line's adjacent mainline, emerging from beneath the 2nd Street NW overpass.
