Northstar Train Mpls-Big-Lake-StP Holiday Ride

December 9, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Exciting group ride on the Northstar train. Here’s the agenda:

We’ll be meeting at the upper level of the Target Field Northstar station at 11:10 AM. This will ensure plenty of time for people to buy tickets as needed and comfortably board for the 11:30 AM departure (flip to northbound trips.) If one of the suburban stations is more convenient, feel free to join anywhere along the route.

Once we arrive at Big Lake at 12:22 PM, we’ll walk down to Lupulin Brewing for lunch and refreshments, making sure to get back in time for the 2:45 PM departure from Big Lake to St. Paul Union Depot (a special run that Northstar has not done before!)

Come and chat commuter rail, railroad history, exurbs, intra-city versus inter-city transit, and rare St Paul SPUD routes!

Meet at the Target Field station, 12/9, before 11:30!
