I stumbled upon this SD-10 (the only one I've seen in Minneapolis) the other day. It's located right off 42nd Avenue North & Lyndale Avenue North, right behind a Wells Fargo bank.

I've never seen a RSH-10 (Thunderbeam) in Minneapolis. St. Louis Park, a suburb of Minneapolis, still has two of them - one on 34th street (2 blocks behind Knollwood Mall) and the other at Peter Hobart Elementary. There was another one in St. Louis Park across the street from Miracle Mile, right about where the movie theater is now.

It may have been on the border of Minneapolis. Back in the 80s, Minneapolis had Thunderbolts and 2 Allertors. In the late 90s, 2001's began to spring up here and there. Since 2013, Whelens have multiplied like cancerous cells, replacing all but one Thunderbolt (located on U of M's west bank campus). The SD-10 (shown in the pictures above) took me by surprise.

I have known about this for years. There used to be a yellow SD-10 at the train yard in Fridley (near this) but it was replaced with an Eclipse 8.

Those weren't Minneapolis. The first one was in Falcon Heights, it was replaced by a 508 a few days ago. the bottom two pics are from Richfield, that one is still up and running.

Close to Minneapolis, I guess. Oh, well.
How weird is it that I posted that right after it was replaced???
