Friday Flashback - B&LE 909 in the Mallet House

dmir227's picture

When CN purchased the Missabe in 2004 one of their first reassignments of power was to transfer B&LE 909 and 903 to the DM&IR. Now we have 5 of the Bessemer T-3s on the property, but only 909 can claim to have been rebuilt in Proctor. Note the ceiling above, this is part of the "Mallet House" that CN is planning on removing this year due to its flat roof designing causing numerous issues over the years. The removal will take out stalls 31-40.
