I'd of attached the other images, but can't figure out how.

This afternoon I got a call from my dad saying there was some kind
of passenger train in Cass Lake. I got to the tracks about the same
time BSU John did, he intercepted the train on his way to Bemidji
from Pine River. The train came from the Forks and tied down for an
overnight layover in Cass Lake. The crew was just placing the
OCCUPIED CREW CAR signs on the rails on both sides of the train.

My nephew was following close behind me taking in the action. The
crew was waving at him (not me). I was hoping they would invite him
to come closer, but with the "big wigs" around, I knew that wasn't
going to happen. I told him to "get out of the way", when I did
that, he got mad and struck this pose...

Pretty cool train, both cars had the new logo on them. Would have
been nice to have a new logo'd Geep on the point, but oh well, a
grubby and crusty H1 was good enough for this crew.
