This is a Frank King image I scanned when doing the Missabe color book that shows the butterfly canopy between tracks 3 & 4 at Duluth Union Depot on the ground after it was struck by a new BN centerbeam lumber car. This was in the fall of 1975 when local railroads sent new equipment to the museum for a "Railroad Days" display (lots of good stuff, including new DM&IR SD38-2 209, one of 5 delivered earlier that year).
