March 2015 Photo of the Month:

The last unit to be repainted at Proctor was SD18 193, shown here being pulled outside for the first time in its new dress. The unit was headed to the Lake Superior Railroad Museum and still looks great today. Credit the Missabe Railroad Historical Society for securing paint and helping raising funds for the job.
