Remarks & Notes 
While waiting to photograph a mighty Yellowstone led loaded ore train from the Mesabi Iron Range that was heading to the docks in Two Harbors, something caught my eye. Here was a recently installed tie, already stained with that reddish tint of natural ore, with a 1955 date nail stuck in it from a track gang that went through the Highland Lake area a few months prior. OK, maybe not. But some of these nails have survived many years ( this one has lasted 57 years ) and are still around today even though the former Missabe stopped using them in 62, as in 1962.
