I can't remember which video/DVD it's on but I know there's one I have taken in the sixties that shows the engine sitting on GN track in St.Paul. I think it was film taken from a moving train, either NP or GN.
I do recall seeing a Minneapolis, Anoka, and Cuyuna Range boxcab sitting in the wye area east of SPUD. I think it was blue and white.
Great to go by SPUD every day on my way home from work in St.Paul. There's a lot of work being done on it, new stairways down from the south end of the building to track level where Amtrak trains will be stopping again someday. The light rail tracks on the north side of the building are already in place and signs are going up at the stops, although service won't start until 2014 I believe.
