The Pig's Eye and Red Rock is a modern day Class Two railroad located on the east side of Saint Paul, Minnesota. (Saint Paul was once known as Pig's Eye, after famed bootlegger Pig's Eye Parrant.) It runs to the city of Red Rock, a mythical place taking the place of current Newport and Woodbury, Minnesota. Both of these cities were named Red Rock at one time.
The Pig's Eye and Red Rock provides transfer and switching operations along the Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Canadian Pacific Railway tracks east and west from Hastings, Minnesota, to Saint Paul, Minnesota, stopping at Cottage Grove, Saint Paul Park, Red Rock, and Newport, Minnesota, along the way. The Pig's Eye and Red Rock has bought out the Minnesota Commercial Railroad, renaming it the Pig's Eye Transfer Company. It handles the operation from Saint Anthony (Minneapolis) to Midway (Saint Paul), and the transfers to the Canadian Pacific Railroad's Saint Paul yard and the Pig's Eye and Red Rock Red Rock yards.
Metro Transit, the local bus and light rail operator, provides commuter service, the Red Rock Commuter line from Hastings, Minnesota, to the Saint Paul Union Depot in Saint Paul. The Red Rock Commuter is part of the Northstar line from Hastings, Minnesota, to Saint Cloud, Minnesota.
