Remarks & Notes 
GHOST TRAIN! After a derailment at LP forced the closure of the SB IR Sub from Waldo to Two Harbors, empties get rolling again. little did I know a short 3 weeks later both of these engines would be destroyed in a head on collision with another ore train a mere 200 yards from this very spot. They protected their crew till the end though, no fatalities.
