January 2017 Photo of the Month:
SDM 306 leads sister 319 and a train of gondolas eastbound across Holman Bridge between Taconite and Marble on their way back to Keenan. The cars had hauled used railroad ties to the Braxton Company which had a tie-chipping plant on the site of the old DM&IR High Grade Yard in Bovey. The chips were then sent to Blandin Paper in Grand Rapids for fuel. October 23, 1993. Steve Glischinski photograph.
