An DW&P car,don't see those too often anymore.I used to live about 30 yards from the small yard they had in West Duluth.It had been closed a few years,but the roundhouse was still there and the other structures they used for maintenance were still there also.They had just closed it down a few years before when the downtown "bridge Yard" was closed and they built Pokegama Yard in South Superior just across the St Louis River from Steelton Yard to replace it.
A few months ago I kept spotting a CNW Dash 9(?) on the mainline in Wheaton. Saw the engine something like 3 times in a week, but haven't seen it since. I keep a look out for it whenever I'm in the area with my camera

This was still on live rails, in Macon, Georgia, though I'm certain there's a scrapping operation on the far side of the yard.
