Vultures warming in the sunshine

Happy Halloween. Here are some vultures roosting on the water tower to keep you company this night.

The Pioneer Chair Car

Brookings was the original head office of the DM&E, so the colors they chose for this railroad are the same colors used by South Dakota State University.

Passenger Train

The Dakota Minnesota and Eastern Railroad, DM&E, owns several passenger cars which they use for employee outings and special events. This railroad used to be headquartered in Brookings, SD, but has now been purchased by the Canadian Pacific. It is unusual to see a passenger train these days, so I took some pictures.
