Diesel Locomotives, 1986-1990

Because of the merger with the Milwaukee Road, Soo Line trains began showing up in unusual places in the Twin Cities (at least, unusual in that they normally didn't go there so often only a year earlier). One of those was the big yard in St. Paul, MN, commonly called Pig's Eye Yard. The merger is about four months old at the time of this photo, March 23, 1986 at the entrance to St. Paul Yard. All-Soo consists would become less frequent as time went forward.
