Steaming Through Alborn - by Kevin Madsen Starting our day 10 years ago we catch DM&IR 417 running south through Alborn with pellets from Utac on March 3, 2003. Still over a year before CN would take over the Missabe and DMIR 417, 207, and 200 drew the Utac assignment on this day. I remember it was really cold this day (about -10F), but not much snow. Still a good day of chasing Missabe and WC ore trains ten years ago.
