The northbound Centennial Passenger Excursion special approaches Endion Depot on July 28th, 1984. After being moved south to Canal Park several years ago, Endion Depot has been renovated and reopened this summer as a cider house, almost 30 years after this photo was taken. For more on the Excursion, see the Summer issue of the Ore Extra.
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!
