The St. Paul Bridge & Terminal Ry. is a terminal and transfer railroad, set in 1952 in Minnesota's capital city. The railroad is designed for people who like to switch -- there are no "mainline" trains to speak of. Dense industrial trackage, multiple switch jobs, and two-man crews offer no shortage of switching or yard work. This railroad is in a brand-new basement below a 1912 house. Trains operate within Yard Limits. Switch list based operations with a Freight Agent position. Wide aisles.
