This image taken in 1972 by Vern Wigfield shows a Missabe transfer working towards Endion Yard and in the process passing by the BN’s former NP engine facility. Locomotive servicing at that facility had been shifted to the Great Northern roundhouse in Superior after the 1970 merger. The shuttered roundhouse was destroyed by fire on October 16, 1973.
The Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range Railway Veteran Employees Association and the Missabe Railroad Historical Society have again partnered to produce the 2014 Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range Railway Company calendar for sale to the public at a cost of $14.00 for the large calendar and $10 for the small calendar including postage (same as last year). The large calendar is approx. 25" x 38" with metal binding on the top and bottom. The smaller calendar is 12” x 18” without the metal binding. These calendars make great Christmas gifts.
The 2014 calendar features a beautiful photo provided by David Schauer of DM&IR locomotives leading a train of empty ore cars up Proctor Hill near Spirit Mountain in June of 1988.

Book contains over 160 copies of depot drawings from our MRHS archives collection. A total of 45 different Missabe depots (DM&N, D&IR and DM&IR) are included. Some depots have only one drawing while several have 10 drawings or more. The depot drawing copies were made from scans of our entire depot original drawing collection. Since many of the original drawings were large D sized drawings (34” x 22”), we have included a CD with all of the drawing scans in the back of the book.
