I like CP's ECO units, both the GP20C and SD30C models (aside from the nose mounted headlights, but I understand the maintenance benefits). We usually have two or three of the GP model working here but not often does one of the six-axle units hang around. Luckily 5020 has lingered at Stinson for a week or so.

Ore Season

A loaded ore train from UTAC arrives in the A yard at Proctor while a Minntac empty prepares to depart. In the upper right an empty from Dock 6 is arriving. This is the busy ore season in Proctor when winter stockpiling of some Minntac production occurs at Duluth versus Two Harbors.

EMD Reflections

While not exactly a melting temperature today, the sun continues to gain angle strength and snow along roads is no match. The resulting puddle made for a nice canvas to reflect a PRS job spotting ore cars on Dock 6 (400/6260/402). 2/18/19

Operational Goal

If the stars align and funds become available, NP SD45 3617 might be operational in 2020. Imagine this coupled to GN 400 "Hustle Muscle" during an LSRM Railfan Weekend. We can hope.

A trio of C40 variants arrive at Proctor with Minntac fluxstone from Hallett Dock in Duluth. Hard to beat the frost/snow we had earlier this month around Proctor.

Mean Green Machines

Their dress is worn and faded, but these two have more than earned their keep for Burlington Northern and successor BNSF. Shown here working "reroute" cars at Rices Point in Duluth. BNSF shifted cars destined for Grand Forks and Noyes to the Twin Ports during a cold weather stretch and are just now cleaning things out.

The once weekly Kelly Lake to Superior works east off the Casco Sub. and onto the Lakes Sub. at West Brookston on February 15, 2019. BNSF 1823 and 1663 are the power for the 30 cars gathered from the Kelly Lake Local's weeks worth on the Iron Range.

U714 Relief

CN 2449 South heads around the curve at the crossing of the Rainy Sub. at Munger, MN on the morning of February 15, 2019. A relief crew got on this cowl led Minntac limestone empty (mostly empty as 4 cars were still loaded) at Kelsey for the final leg back to Proctor.

The Dash 8s have held these limestone runs since they took over for the SD60s back in the Spring of 2015. The 2449 has been on these Minntac runs since 2016 and somehow has stayed clean for the duration.

Snow Removal

The section crew takes a short break from clearing the snow out of wind packed switches on Valentine's Day 2019 while BNSF dozer 940022 wings snow in the background at 28th Street Yard in Superior, WI.

Been a busy winter for these section crews as those of us who have to keep our own driveways clear around here can attest to. Thanks to DCS for the heads up on this yard dozer.
