Rondout Illinois

Ex DM&IR Duluth Missabe Iron Range engine I think, Ron, do you know the lineage?
That should be an ex-DM&IR unit as you thought. IIRC it is an SD18, or late SD-9, that had its high short hood chopped into the current low nose configuration. Cool shot and get some more before it becomes orange.
The rondout tower operator told me the turn job is usually at 5 or so in the morn. But one day at lunch there they had come late, Ive got about ten minutes of them on video working there at rondout
