Wind on the Rails

June 26th, 2005

Another train with wind turbines came through Red Wing on it’s way up to a big wind development in Canada. Ron Barber, of Stewartville, chased the train up to Newport and is sending photos that I’ll post as soon as I get them. In the meantime, here’re a few from Christopher Mueller, of Cass Lake, Minnesota, taken on June 25, 2005, in Mahnomen and between Mahnomen and Brooks:

This one was taken in Mahnomen.

Thanks to Ron and Chris for catching the train!
