On August 11, the Cleveland Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 7-3 in a walkoff 10th inning at Target Field in downtown Minneapolis. The NorthStar Line, which operates commuter service on the BNSF Staples Subdivision also offers service after Twins games. The NorthStar uses MP36PH-3C locomotives and Bombardier bilevel coaches.

Here a pair of the MP36’s hustles through Coon Creek MN with the unhappy fans.
