Sand Systems — Model Railroading

GN Osseo Line

This is the line that ran near our home when we first became interested in industrial switching. We spent a lot of time walking this line and chasing trains working it.

It was actually BN then but we thought we'd take it back to GN time if we modeled it. We even bought old GN timetables to see what trains ran on it.

But there were no yards in this stretch of it and only one train a day working the industries so we didn't think we could keep our operating crews happy if we built a model of this line.

It's an interesting line if you prefer running mostly through trains with a little switching. If you'd like to learn more about this line, you might want to check out our link to the Minnesota Historical Society.
