August 2014 Photo of the Month

Washout! The recent copious amounts of rain in the Arrowhead State remind us of storm damage in years past - in this view taken on September 7, 1990 we see an empty Hill Ore running “wrong main” past crews working to repair a washout along the northbound main. Photo by David Schauer.

Bruce Meyer CD Volume #3 "The Yards"


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.
