Taconite Harbor - 10 years on

dmir227's picture

Hard to believe it has been 10 year since the LSRM and Cliffs Erie operated a pair of excursions over the dormant LTVSMC mainline between Knox (Hoyt Lakes) and Taconite Harbor. Great memories from that weekend but perhaps my fondest was riding in the Skytop Cedar Rapids and rolling across the dock. The dock area was cloudy but as we passed over the sun came out and I was able to get a once-in-a-lifetime (for me) image looking back. I framed the dock in the unique window of the observation car to add some flavor. The dock and track are still in place, so there is still hope...
