Proctor Black Friday

Instead of fighting crowds at the area malls on this "Black Friday" I elected to scope out Proctor. A Missabe crew (not the normal day PRS job) was using GP9 7044 to switch cars. Didn't see its sister at the shop, so it might be inside. If this experiment holds it should make for nice shooting in the spring and summer when the sum moves around to the west/NW in the late afternoon.

A pair of UP SD70Ms as Kent reported to be off M-DMCN was used to move cars from Pokegama to Proctor. They sure look odd here, but a welcome sight. Caught them headed back light to Wisconsin.

A bonus was 215 down from Two Harbors.
