April 4th: D&NE 2-8-0 #28, under steam after years of neglect and a lengthy restoration, switches in the yard at the Lake Superior Railroad Museum in Duluth, Minnesota. Come July she will enter passenger service, and will start running regular trips to Two Harbors in August.
Backing out of the enclosed museum yard.
DM&IR SD-18 #193 creeps after #28 onto the main. Here #28 continues in reverse after the switch behind her is thrown, and #193 waits patiently to follow.
#193 moved up the main a ways and picked up a flatbed stored on an abandoned track. After fetching it back to #28, #193 moved back into the yard. Here #28 follows suit, passing below the I-35.
#28 moves the flatbed to outside the Draper maintenance building, under the modest downtown skyline. It was in the Draper building where her restoration was performed.
Finally, #28 backs out of the yard only to re-enter and stop and rest where she began.
Sorry about the quality, this was shot with my phone. I wasn't expecting any of it.
