Remarks & Notes 
Except for the number boards, this could have been a typical day at Allouez on the Great Northern anytime after 1962. The simplified scheme SD7 is leaving the yard with a short transfer of empty ore jennies. In the fall of 1970 BN was still handling raw ore as well as taconite pellets, and the docks still saw switch jobs with loaded jennies.
