Double Track and Brakeshoe SmokeDMIR 223 leads a SD40-3 and a SD38 down Proctor Hill as they pass the approach to 40th Ave. in Duluth back 13 years ago on Dec. 8, 2002.The regulars make a bit of smoke as brake for the bottom of the grade passing the searchlight on the still double tracked Proctor Hill. This wasn't the real classic Missabe with such things as high hoods, more smoke, and more left handed running, but the final years of independence were still cool to shoot.
