All of the iron ore was transported by rail to a wide number of lake ports on Lake Superior, Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. This book lists all of the ore docks constructed on The Great Lakes. Includes photos of the ore docks and ore cars, ore car schematics and pertinent data.
"The Missabe Road tells the complete story of the DM&IR: its construction, early operation, line extensions, passenger service, rolling stock, steam locomotives, and today's modern diesels. Frank A. King examines underground and open pit mining operations, modern-day taconite mining, the handling and transportation of ore to the docks, and the loading of boats."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
