An LTV Mining Railroad loaded ore train prepares to depart the Hoyt Lakes, Minnesota yard on September 14, 1996. This train will head east to the Taconite Harbor, MI ore dock where it will drop tons of taconite pellets into the holds of huge vessels on Lake Superior. The power for this train was F9A No. 4214, F9Bs No. 4221 and 4222, and GP38 No. 701. This railroad closed down in early 2002 when the LTV company ended the operations of the harbor. In 2004 Cliffs Erie hired a contractor to claim leftover chips and pellets from the mine due to the high iron prices. The cleanup trains ran until 2008. In 2014, the F9s were sold off. Noted author, photographer and trip organizer Steve Glischinski escorted Teresa and I through this area to photograph this operation and several others in Minnesota’s Mesabi Iron Range over a four-day period. Steve’s knowledge of the area and clear skies enabled us to obtain many great photos.
