Train Ride on the Osceola and St. Croix

By Chad Kluck on

Today I took a train ride on the Osceola and St. Croix from Osceola, Wisconsin, to Marine on the St. Croix, Minnesota. The views of the river, cliffs, and trees were amazing. The train traveled quick enough to produce a nice breeze in the cars. They had a three combo car (passenger, mail, and freight) as well as 4 or so passenger cars. The ride was 90 minutes round-trip.

I'll put some pictures up soon, right now I am dealing with my computer that crashed. My ever faithful back-ups have failed so I'm scrambling to find the last 10 months of my life.
