NOTE: We have recently learned that Jeff Ainsworth, author and owner of Monte Vista Publishing, passed away on October 16, 2023. For months, we have been unable to obtain Monte Vista books, but now find that his relatives have acquired Monte Vista's inventory making books available to dealers  once again. There will be no new Monte Vista books, but we will continue to sell previous volumes as long as supplies last. We have learned that Pacific Electric volumes 9 and 10 are now available. We will put them up on our web site when received.

VINTAGE ORE RAILROADS

DVD: $835.00 TWD

C. Vision Productions takes you back in time to view ore hauling railroads from Minnesota and Michigan in the late 1950メs to the mid 1980メs from the films of Robert C. Anderson. Bobメs camera captures the last days of the Duluth, Missabe and Iron Rangeメs steam operations in 1959.ᅠᅠMissabeメs massive 2-8-8-4 Yellowstoneメs are seen hauling long ore trains across the iron range along with Missabeメs 500 series 2-10-2 locomotives in yard service.ᅠᅠWe are even treated to a cab ride in Yellowstone number 225! Then Bob treats us to the DM&IRメs diesel operations from 1972 to 1986.ᅠᅠSD-9メs and SD-18メs were common along with Alco C-630メs and newly acquired SD-38 dash 2メs.ᅠᅠSome non-ore action is seen around the Duluth area including the Duluth, Winnipeg and Pacific and Chicago & North Western.ᅠᅠHighlights of other ore haulers are seen including Reserve Mining and U. S. Steel. Then it is off to the upper peninsula of Michigan where we find the Milwaukee Road hauling all rail taconite trains in the Iron Mountain region.ᅠᅠThe Lake Superior and Ishpeming is also featured with recently acquired Baltimore and Ohio Alco RSD-12メs. Finally, Bobメs camera captures the last days of the Chicago and North Westernメs FM locomotives in Ore service.ᅠᅠBob follows several FM led trains between Iron Mountain and Escanaba, Michigan.ᅠᅠYou will be amazed by not only seeing, but also hearing these giant locomotives grind up the grades of the Michigan North Country.
