If you are a train lover or have train lovers in your family, then the Twin Cities is a fantastic place for you.

James J. Hill–a native of Ontario, Canada–was a pioneer in Minnesota developing the Great Northern Railway and pioneering the Pacific Northwest Railway.  Because of his legacy, the Twin Cities has a rich railroad history making it a great location for any train lovers.
