Washout! The recent copious amounts of rain in the Arrowhead State remind us of storm damage in years past - in this view taken on September 7, 1990 we see an empty Hill Ore running “wrong main” past crews working to repair a washout along the northbound main. Photo by David Schauer.
The third part of the Meyer Collection series focuses on the Missabe's Yards with 674 photos. A substantial part of the book is on Proctor Yard, but Duluth, Endion Yard, Two Harbors, Biwabik, Virginia and Mitchell Yard are also visited. The locomotive types are the 0-8-0 and 0-10-0 switchers, Union, Consolidation, Mikado, Santa Fe, Texas, 2-8-8-2 Mallet, Yellowstone and Pacific. There are also a few SD-9s, Cabooses and ore cars.
The photos can be viewed either in the self-starting CD photo album book or individually. The book works in PCs (WIN 2000/XP/VISTA) and Macs.
Cleaning the 227 (L to R: Greta Schauer, Carter Mavec, Tessa Schauer)
The annual Clean Team event yesterday drew some nice press in the Duluth News Tribune. There were some additional photos that appeared in the print version. A big thank you to all the volunteers that were able to help out!
