[G2:1225 n=1 size=150]
Take a sentimental journey to the Twin Ports of Duluth-Superior in the 1950s, a real Mecca for railfans. At a time when diesels were taking over railway operations around the nation, steam was still used on a regular basis in this booming Great Lakes port. The Twin Ports were served by many popular railroads such as the Soo Line, Northern Pacific, Great Northern, Chicago & Northwestern, and the Duluth Missabe. All are featured in this collection accompanied by detailed captions that describe both passenger trains and freight trains hauling such cargo as taconite and grain.
