06-20-2019 big lift

Built in 1961, dismantled in 2019. Bridge no. 9482 was built to carry millions of tons of natural iron ore from mine pits near Eveleth, MN and included Fayal 1, 2 and 3, Cloquet Annex, Pearsall, Security and Troy mines that started mining in 1895 at the Fayal mines and ended in 2000 with the Security mine under the operation of Auburn Minerals. Here are workers removing a section of bridge after cutting it loose from the supports below. Note the red natural ore color still predominate after all these years and the thickness of the steel used to support the heavy trains.

Range Return

Range Return

BNSF's M-KLLSUP rounds the curve under Minnesota 23 from Kelly Lake on a sunny Saturday morning. This train runs once a week from the Iron Range to Superior, bringing back the cars the Kelly Lake Local gathers up during its week of work on the Range. It returns to Superior anytime Thursday through Saturday, whenever a road crew is called. The westbound trip to Kelly Lake is more predictable and usually runs Monday evenings.

The 15 loaded BN ore cars look nice on the head end and place this local on the former GN ore lines. Shot taken with the 3 SD40-2s (1823, 1964, 1663) leading 51 cars eastbound near Wrenshall, MN on June 15, 2019.
