Utac Empties

Just before sunset, DMIR 405 thunders out of Munger, MN heading towards an evening load slot at Utac on April 22, 2018. Three CN painted EMDs provide the power on this U71682 just north of Proctor. The lead tunnel motor continues to work these ore assignments in northeast Minnesota, as it has done for over 20 years now.

Dash 8s Up the Hill

CN 2117 leads a northbound up Steelton Hill on the far western edge of Duluth on April 19, 2018. Four Dash 8s are online for this northbound without shover units. CN 2117, GECX 7368, GECX 7388, GECX 9411 provide the power (the trailing GEVO is dead) up Steelton Hill towards the Missabe Sub. Some rainbow consists on the CN lately with all the leased power, although many trail as not sure how many of the rent-a-wrecks can lead in Canada.

04-19-2018 Covering 2nd Ave

United Taconite works on burying what was once the 2nd Ave interchange to Highway 53 south. The dump behind with snow yet was the site of the former Mineview. Side note: the dump box on the truck was made at Tritec which is now part of RMS and is located in the former Oliver Mining Rouchleau pit building about a 1/4 mile to the northeast of this location.
