NOTE: We have recently learned that Jeff Ainsworth, author and owner of Monte Vista Publishing, passed away on October 16, 2023. For months, we have been unable to obtain Monte Vista books, but now find that his relatives have acquired Monte Vista's inventory making books available to dealers  once again. There will be no new Monte Vista books, but we will continue to sell previous volumes as long as supplies last. We have learned that Pacific Electric volumes 9 and 10 are now available. We will put them up on our web site when received.

MINNESOTA SHORTLINES - VOL 2: THE CENTRAL LINES

Default Title: $829.00 TWD

Featuring... St. Croix Valley Railroad, Minnesota Commercial Railway, Northern Lines Railway, and the Minnesota Zephyr Dinner Train. See three fascinating shortlines as they switch cars and pull long trains of grain products and other general merchandise across the Twin Cities and throughout Central Minnesota. The St. Croix Valley RR operates a 36 mile freight line over former Northern Pacific trackage from a connection with the BNSF at Hinckley, MN. Plus their diesels wear a very attractive version of the 1960’s NP paint scheme. The Minnesota Commercial operates a switching, terminal and transfer railway that interchanges traffic with all Twin Cities railroads. The Northern lines operate two ex-Great Northern lines out of St. Cloud, MN and interchanges with the BNSF. The show ends with the Minnesota Zephyr who used classic F units on an elegant dinner train that ran out of Stillwater, MN and along the woodland bluffs of the St. Croix River Valley.
