Extra South 174 passes through Waldo with its destination of the arrival yard in Two Harbors only minutes away on a sunny August 2, 1975. Shortly after this location, the mainlines will split and the train will take the steeper southbound main into town. In less than 5 years, lead engine DM&IR SD18 174 will be chosen to start the SDM rebuilding program at Proctor and emerge as DM&IR 301. The boxcars on the right are at the J.C. Cambell lumber mill, which opened in 1964. Photo by Steve Glischinski.
