Peace River Turn on the M & M Sub.
The CP Rail Manitoba & Minnesota Subdivision interchanges with the Peace River Northern at Nance, MN. This shortline railway serves a few industries in Nance, and also serves a paper mill located off the layout (see Industry That Isn't There).
As part of my operating sequence, the Peace River turn departs Fort Frances with cars for the mill and industries at Nance. One the way back, it also switches the grain elevator at Ritchie. On this Labour Day weekend,
I was able to catch a few shots of the turn on its way back from Nance, this time headed up by an SW9 and--as a bonus--a caboose.
