His love of trains started at a young age

Email

During his youth, Dennis Olson raced the trains that sped on the Great Northern Railway through Osseo on his bike, pedaling as hard as he could to get to the station before the trains and watch them in fascination.

“You could tell when the big steam engines would be coming because the ground would shake almost like an earthquake, and that’s when I would start to ride,” he said, “Eventually, they went to diesel, so I would have to listen for the train to whistle before starting.”
