Great Northern Icon

Post by brianc » Mon Jun 06, 2016 10:07 am

29th May 2016 marked the centenary of the death of James J Hill, founder of the Great Northern. His choice of name for his new railroad was influenced by another Great Northern Railway. Sadly both are gone, but not forgotten. 7 years after the death of Hill this lady was born and later in her life did visit America although not her namesake road. She is definitely not gone and not forgotten.

Just managed to get this video before departing to the Summer Meet at Benson.
