Remarks & Notes 
On a frigid Feb. day D&M 975 is trying to get some loaded coal hoppers onto the Chief Wawatam at Mackinaw City. The coal was bound from West Virginia to Algoma Steel at Sault Ste. Marie and was part of a 300 car move that was hauled up on the Michigan Northern. It was the Chiefs largest amount of freight in a number of years. The Chief has a good head of steam built up and will soon be doing battle with the ice clogged Straits of Mackinac.
