Soo Line 1975-1992 Photo
Between 1975 and 1992, Soo Line's aggressive marketing and operating plans, new equipment and paint schemes, and acquisitions, such as that of Milwaukee Road, marked its efforts to modernize and expand. In March 1992, however, the Soo Line passed into history, when it assumed the name of its parent and began operating as CP Rail System. This is a nostalgic collection of Soo Line photographs that includes heavy freights, terminal switchers, transfers, and more.

Chugs & Hugs: Growing Up In A Train Station - Volume 1
Chugs & Hugs: Growing Up In A Train
Chugs and Hugs captures the true story of my father, a determined man who grew up in rural Wisconsin during the depression and World War II. At the age of sixteen, Lyle C. Williams became the patriarch of the family when his father died from a ruptured appendix during the days before antibiotics. Lyle assumed his father’s role as a railroad telegrapher during the fascinating era of steam engines. He handed over his entire meager paycheck to his widowed mother, yet he helped put his three sisters through college. He joined the Soo Line Railroad in 1942 and married the love of his life in 1948. The couple then moved to Minnesota. Together, they raised a family of five while living above the railroad depot. Already like the sounds of this hard working young man and want to read more. This is a story related through the eyes of a child growing up alongside the tracks, as it was common at the time for the agents’ families to live in an apartment above the station, or ‘depot’ as it was known. Having grown up with trains passing only 12 feet from my bedroom window, a flood of memories rush through me every time I hear a whistle blow, or the clickity-clack of the steel wheels gliding over the tracks. I’ve painted a colorful portrait of life where family events are intricately i...
