Norwood Young America residents toured a train engine in October of 2009 during the Minnesota Valley Regional Rail Coalition’s three-day, 94-mile “Whistle Stop Tour” from NYA to Hanley Falls to raise funds for rehabilitation of the Minnesota Prairie Line. By next Monday, Nov. 26, an upgraded line between NYA and Winthrop will accommodate larger, faster trains and could lead to increased train traffic through NYA and Hamburg. File photo by Paul Downer
