Hey all,

I was up in Two Harbors a few weekends ago and I came across the former Erie Mining F9 #4211. On the pilot "Belzona Bullet" was stenciled it was not big or anything and was in the same "font" as a "FUEL" marking or any of the other misc notes on a diesel locomotive. This just struck me as odd, does anyone know what this is?
