Remarks & Notes 
Another oldie from the little yellow boxes! I don't know if the pair of Sharks were ever officially owned by MN, but they did spend a summer or two traipsing back and forth from Cadillac to either Mackinaw City or Grand Rapids....when they could be made to run. MN was burdened with west coast lumber after "flagging out" on a general rate increase. The Sharks were welcome and cheap, so they filled the bill for as long as they could be kept in service. They they were sent packing to the ELS in Escanaba where they have languished in storage since the early 80's. The light was pretty high when I shot the pair, but well worth the effort.
