Erie Mining 1977 Storm Flashback

kdbuell's picture

 It was a storm similar to 2012 in 1977 that took out most of Erie Mining's track support from Crest to Taconite Harbor.  It is possible that there could be similar damage this time.  The '77 damage occured at a time when there was no traffic on the line due to a steelworker's strike.  These photos were taken a couple of days after that storm.
