Title:  A massive Great Northern 2-8-8-0 steam engine stored at Superior WI in June 1958.
Description:  This was at the end of steam where steam engines were stored in case of need during the fall grain rush across the GN system. The GN had a large yard in Superior WI that remains a large switching yard on the BNSF. 4 BNSF SD9's that once locked couplers with steam engines still remain on the BNSF in 2012. Search for BNSF 1553 on the archive. http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=2749873
