Red Wing to Rochester

Point of Interest

Map submitted by Tim Thorp.

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

I have been to Farmfest near Morton, and assume that this is the area you are in. Always wondered if there was an old railbed near there as it looks like one along one of the roads nearby and also below the hill by the river I believe there is another railway and bridge crossing the river, but haven't figured out where it goes. I live near the tracks that my dad tells me go all the way to Duluth (now a bike trail-central MN). I'm new to this stuff and wondered if there was a rail company named the Duluth, etc. or if the past comment on here means he is looking for info on rail lines that go to Duluth? Great info, keep updating. Thanks and have a great day :)

This railroad was re-organized as the Wis. Minn. & Pacific RR and later the CGWRR.
