    Union Pacific runs a small yard through here we haul a lot of soy beans to the bio diesel plant blood cars from the pig plant in town and corn for ethanolplants we have real close by. Kinda in between two larger citys Minnapolis St Paul Minnesota and Sioux Falls South Dakota is about 60 Miles away so we get stuff coming through from all over.. Saw a few Canada Centrals riding our rails with the BN's the other day to but didnt have the cam handy
