SD40-2 6840 (Frisco 950) at Fridley, Minnesota in September 1982.
This is an inner ring suburb, north of Minneapolis. The view is at Northtown Yard of the successor railroad, looking to the northeast, on the west side of the diesel shop. The bridge is 44th Avenue Northeast (also known as Anoka County Highway 2). The yellow exterior sand tower is no longer there.
Today, the large grain elevator complex is operated by General Mills.
East of the photo location, the elevator is at 25 44th Avenue Northeast and the current railroad’s Twin Cities Offices are at 80 44th Avenue Northeast.
Special thanks to Mark Davidson.
