May 2016 Photo of the Month

DM&IR SD40-3s 404 and 402 lead a train of taconite through Fairbanks Minnesota on October 7, 1996 on the way to Two Harbors. 404 and 402 are both less than a year old in their current version at the time of the photo, having been delivered to the DM&IR in January 1996. Both were rebuilt from Southern Pacific SD45T-2 "tunnel motors" by Helm. The Missabe would eventually roster 20 such units with many surviving into the CN era. Photo by Steve Glischinski.
