Proud Heritage

With the newest of the Missabe ore cars still in service being 56 years old (with most over 60), it continues to amaze me to see them in daily service. This morning glint shot at Proctor a few weeks ago shows some of the layers of history painted on the side of the cars. With over 1,100 new cars on the property I wouldn’t expect the DM&IR veterans to last much more than a handful of years. But then again who thought they would last this long!
