BNSF Railway work in Deer River

During the week of Sept. 21 an array of equipment used to work on the railroad could be seen parked in Deer River and on Sept. 25 they could be seen lining the tracks with their engines running ready to be dispersed to various locations. Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway is doing a large infrastructure maintenance project throughout the state that includes replacing the ties, which will result in occasional road closures. BNSF is investing about $326 million in this yearly maintenance and expansion project. Photo by Louise H. McGregor
