An LTV Mining Railroad train of empty taconite pellet cars heads west back to the taconite plant at Hoyt Lakes, Minnesota on September 14, 1996. This train is returning from the Taconite Harbor, MI ore dock where it dropped tons of taconite pellets into the holds of huge vessels on Lake Superior. After reloading at Hoyt Lakes this train will head back to Taconite Harbor for unloading. The power for this train was four EMD F9s. 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 when the last train ran. In 2014, the F9s were sold off.
