A Duluth Missabe and Iron Range SD38-2 and SD9 lead a train of taconite from Proctor to Two Harbors, Minnesota for loading on Lake Superior.  The ships of Lake Superior for generations have taken the ore of Minnesota to feed our steel industry.  Duluth, Missabe and Iron Range was once part of US Steel's family of railroads, becoming part of of Transtar in 1988.  Duluth, Missabe and Iron Range is today part of Canadian National.

We see an eastbound Frisco train at Avard, Oklahoma with carloads from the Santa Fe interchange.  Today's train heads for Tulsa, where its Louisville and Nashville bound traffic will be classified to head for Memphis. Frisco played a key role in connecting the railroads of the Southeast and the Southwest. Frisco is a part of today's BNSF Railway.
