It's a great pic, and the track looks well maintained.

Pulling ore cars.  Missabe is a safe bet.

NICE, ROARING-HOT FIRE!

Every bit of 3,000F!  
750+ superheat to the pistons...

The NOISE is intense.....!

He's got a nice big 'heel", across the back of the grates...
85% of the grates are covered in about a 2-inch deep, flat,
white-hot fire-bed.  
He can go for miles, just like that... with a heavy train,
they almost fire themselves.  

LOVE IT!

W.

Southbound loaded ore train on the Messabi Division a few miles north of Proctor (near Duluth, MN). Engine is a 2-8-8-4.

Another spotting feature that helps confirm DM&IR is that he is running left-hand on double track which was their standard.
