Moving the Duluth & Iron Range steam locomotive 347 to the Museum of Mining, Chisholm, Minnesota

The Duluth and Iron Range steam locomotive and tender was moved from the tracks over the streets of Chisholm in the last week of December 1953. To move the locomotive the final blocks to the museum, rail was laid down in front of the locomotive; it was then pulled onto that rail section and the rear rail section was moved around to the front of the locomotive and the process was repeated until the locomotive reached the museum grounds. ~ Photo Credit: Minnesota Museum of Mining
