Remarks & Notes 
Deleivered by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1910 this 2-8-0 worked hard hauling 48 loaded 50 ton cars or 2700 tons of crude ore from the Soudan Mine on the Vermillion Range to the shores of Lake Superior. This engine was donated to the City of Tower in 1962 by the DM&IR who replaced it with much larger engines like the Yellowstone. It's still on display in Tower and it's also on the National Register of Historic Places. The Tower Soudan Historical Society is doing a great job in the restoration and upkeep of this display to make sure it survives for many more years. Included in this display are a DM&IR passenger car, work car and caboose along with the Tower Depot filled with artifacts from days gone by.
