Rail Equipment in St Paul

Near the corner of Transfer Road and University Avenue in St. Paul, there are about six or seven machines on the railroad tracks. While looking up the name of Transfer Road on google maps, I see that the equiptment isn’t in the satellite image, so possibly these older looking machines are currently being used, possibly for the light rail being build nearby.

But they were opened up so the kids could climb inside, play with levers, and jump off from, so they had a good twenty minutes or so playing on them. In one picture, you can tell Ada is a bit nervous about being high up on one (clinging to Liam) but after Liam jumped off, she did too.

Helena was at a friend’s house, who had a sister who was sick, and Helena ended up with a stomach virus that kept her out of school for two days.
