We are on the ex-Reserve Mining, Northshore Mining railroad at about mp6 east out of Beaver Bay Minnesota. We catch the loaded morning train in dynamic braking, dropping downgrade in the snow with SD18 #1230 leading SD28's #1235 #1234 #1233. A little more than an hour, and we caught the empty train headed back to mine at Babbitt. SD28's are now in the lead. #1233 #1234 #1235 and SD18 #1230 trailing. He notches it out at mp5 for the couple mile climb up from Lake Superior. We catch him again near mp7. Thanks for watching. Video was taken by myself April 13th 2000. By sure to check out my other clips from the 70's up to today. There is something for everyone. All my clips are Copyrighted material. Do not use or reproduce without permission.

07-06-18 This is video 5 of 10. I took a little trip along highway 61 in northern Minnesota to the Canadian border stopping here and there to do some drone flying. I have driven by this plant a few times and always wondered what it was. Today I stopped by to check it out. It is nice to see industry thriving in the north. Do something nice for someone today.

In 1990, Cyprus Northshore restarted the former Reserve Mining operation, moribund since 1986. We visited ore country shortly after the restart, and the operation still had the flavor of Reserve, with only a few locos being re-lettered. A few miles out of Silver Bay we caught the returning empty tailings train being passed by the empties headed back to Babbitt. Later that day, we got the same power set just missing an over/under at the Erie Mining overpass. A few days later we were back at the earlier location to catch the tailings train, loaded ore, and then the tailings and ore empties passing right in front of us. Note the RARE EMD SD28's in use. This operation is currently owned by Cleveland Cliffs and is mothballed with the downturn in the iron/steel industry.

Video we took as we drove around town the day after an ice storm. Every home has trees that are down and many light poles and power lines are down as well. So much so that the Red Cross had to come up and set up a shelter for all the people with out power so they could have somewhere to sleep that has heat.

In this show, we will cover CN's former DM&IR ore lines in northeastern Minnesota, along with a sampling of Northshore Mining and BNSF operations in the area. What draws fans to Minnesota's north woods and the shores of Lake Superior isn't just the beautiful country or the interesting iron ore operations, it's the motive power used to pull trains through this unique region. EMD is king here, and we document these fine machines as they thunder across CN's Missabe, Minntac, Iron Range, and Two Harbors Subdivisions. We also follow Northshore Mining's mainline between Silver Bay and Babbitt, Minnesota, exploring some remote areas of Minnesota's Arrowhead. You'll see NSM's older SD40-3s, as well as leased SD90MACs hauling raw taconite ore and tailings trains across the railroad. BNSF's Kelly Lake and Grand Rapids locals are also briefly covered, powered by pairs of SD40-2s. With GE power slowly being equipped with straight air for ore service on the former Missabe, we made it our goal to bring you the best of EMD-powered trains in the Northland before it was too late. Many SD40 and SD40-2 variants are seen in operation, along with a brief look at Missabe SD38 and SD38-2 locomotives. Rebuilt SD45T-2 tunnel motors in CN, B&LE, and DM&IR paint steal the show! We cover the area in all four seasons, adding to the variety of the program. Sit back and relax as we take you on an exciting tour from Lake Superior to the Iron Range, in C. Vision's "EMDs in Minnesota's Iron Ore Country". Running Time 150 Minutes ©2018 C. Vision Productions

In the first clip, we see the empty tailings train at mp-6, with the crew operating the train from the radio controlled caboose backing down grade toward Silver Bay. The SD40-3's are in dynamic braking as they roll past. The second clip at mp-5, The SD's are getting a run for the hill, and you can hear the crew notch out the hard working units. NSM, North Shore Mining, SD40-3's #652-ex-PRR-PC #6092-CR #6345----#651-ex-PRR-PC #6085-CR #6338, and are seen at mp-6.5, and are almost were they need to go to dump there tailings, and head back for another load at Silver bay. These clips are seen here at Beaver Bay, MN. 4/13/2000 Thanks for watching Video was taken by myself 4/13/2000 Please check out for other video clips. I have something for everyone, from the 70's, until today. As all my clips, They are copyrighted. Please do not use without permission. Have a great day. jackmp294.5™ video by Jack D Kuiphoff © 2015

I recently went up the Iron Range/North Shore, from August 5th-7th. First up is a UP freight, most likely the DMIT (Des Moines, IA-Itasca Yard) passing through Sandstone, MN before sunrise. Listen to how the horn echoes off the surrounding countryside. Second is a Northbound CN freight in Ambridge, WI, just South of Superior. Next is an NorthShore Mining empty taconite tailings train, with a SD40-3 on each end (they run DPU's up there) near Silver Bay, MN. After that is the Sparrow's Point train. The recent market for steel has led CN to contract with Cliff's Erie to reclaim spilled taconite pellets from their dock at Taconite Harbor and ship them by rail to Sparrow's Point, MD. Following that is a taconite empty seen in Iron Junction led by BLE #909 heading for Minntac in Mountain Iron, MN. Finally, the same train is seen heading South with taconite loads at Kelsey, MN.

Railfanning 04/24/11 COPYRIGHT KC RAILFANNING PRODUCTIONS Earlier in the day, we ventured north to Silver Bay, MN to try and find a Northshore Mining train. Unfortinately we missed one of their trains by just minutes. :( On way back south stopped by Two Harbors, MN and saw a train on the docks unloading. Ended up back in Proctor, MN to see the same power we caught last nite(this time with the B&LE power leading!!!!!! Hell YEA!!!!! ) leading loaded taconite to twords the docks in Duluth.

We are at Silver Bay, MN. as we watch North Shore Mining empties, with NSM 1233-1234-1230-1236 ( 3 SD28's & 1 SD18) getting a run for the hill at MP4. Then at mp6.5, she is working hard in the hill. As the train passes, we spot the car that carried the first load from Babbit to Silver Bay. The following day, 4/15/2000, the 1233, and the only caboose they own (Radio controled to opperate from on the backward trip to Silver Bay) was destroyed in a collision at Babbit. These are true SD28's, and not rebuilds. There was only 6 built for US markets by EMD in 1965. 2 for Columbus & Greenville, and 4 for Reserve Minning (NSM). They are 1800 HP non-turbo charged 567D1. They are basically a non-turbo charged SD35. They are on a SD35 frame. Type in EMD SD28 on Wikipedia. Thanks for watching Clip with caboose can be seen at link below. 4-13-00. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGPKxMQ8KMA Thanks for watching. Jackmp294...

During my many trips up north to capture the LTV Railroad I would also stop by the NorthShore Mining Railroad just 30 minutes away. Here is a classic view of the North Shore at mile post 11 from August 1999. The vintage EMD's would soon be replaced by SD-40's.

We are in Silver Bay MN. on the North Shore Mining railroad. At mp6.5, we watch the tailings train with its string of side dump cars heading to the tailings dump. NSM 652-651 is in notch #8 as he split the signals while he fights the grade up from Lake Superior. Caboose #20 brings up the rear. The caboose is used as cab control back to Silver Bay, which elliminates the need of running around the train. The following day, the caboose (which is the only one they own), was total in a wreck along with 1233, one of their rare SD28's. The SD28 involved was the one leading my other clip. Thanks for watching. 4-13-00. Jackmp294.5 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW8fcQRV8Zo

Crank up your speakers, and sit back and listen to these rare EMD's roar past the camera. We are at Beaver Bay, MN. as we watch North Shore Mining with a tailings train, powered by NSM 1235, 1234, 1226 (2 SD28's & 1 SD18) We are near the top of the grade at mp7 as she is working hard in the 8th notch battling the hill. Almost a year after this video was shot, on 4/15/2000, the only caboose they own (Radio controlled to operate from on the backward trip to Silver Bay) was destroyed in a collision at Babbit along with locomotive 1233. These are true SD28's, and not rebuilds. There was only 6 built for US markets by EMD in 1965. 2 for Columbus & Greenville, and 4 for Reserve Mining (NSM). They are 1800 HP non-turbo charged 567D1. They are basically a non-turbo charged SD35. They are on a SD35 frame. Type in EMD SD28 on Wikipedia. Video was taken April 17, 1999.
