The Line Thru Colby
Title:  The Line Thru Colby
Description:  Colby is situated on a former Soo Line right of way that connected Ashland to the main line to Minneapolis/St. Paul at Spencer. This Ashland to Spencer line also connected with the line from Minneapolis/St. Paul to Slt. St. Marie at Prentice. Under the CN, the line from Spencer to the north is now a branch that ends at Medford, about 20 miles north of Colby. In Colby the line is mainly parallel to Highway 13. Looking down the line in the direction of Spencer some silos of the local co-op are visible as well as some boxcars spotted at Packaging Corp. of America. They can be seen by the light colored building behind the crossing gate in the center of the photo.

United Co-op Elevator and WSOR Terminal
Title:  United Co-op Elevator and WSOR Terminal
Description:  Looking west along the line at Oshkosh into the United Co-op (ADM, and before that Olsen)facility and WSOR (WATCO) terminal. Late spring saw some construction activity pick up at the elevator. Though the construction was in a location not readily seen from public access points, over the summer it was readily apparent what was going on. United added two huge bins which dwarf the largest ones in this photo. A new surge bin is also being added which seems to have the capacity of the left front bin. The Clairville Road/State Highway 91 grade crossing can be seen at the horizon of the road bed.
