This Soo Line Railroad ore car was built in 1916 for hauling iron ore from northern Wisconsin. It was later sold to a private industry in Park Falls, Wisconsin who donated it to Mid-Continent Railway Museum in 1997. It is believed to be the last Soo Line ore car of this type left in existence. The car was painted and lettered for the upcoming Soo Line Day at the museum, August 21.
