New Proctor Fueling Facility

When CN purchased the Missabe in 2004 they shortly after elected to use a local contractor (Edwards) fuel diesels directly from a tank truck on the servicing tracks at Proctor. Now, given Proctor's elevated status as a yard and shop, CN has decided to build a new fueling facility along the frontage road near the diesel house. A contractor with a large crane has been driving pilings to support this new facility. It is expected that the sand tower behind the house will also be relocated to this general area. If they keep the frontage road open this could provide a nice area for roster shots.
