Remarks & Notes 
Erie Mining/LTV Steel owned three Alco C420s. Number 7222 was delivered as # 602 in 1965 and in 1991 was assigned to the Hoyt Lakes plant site where it worked crude ore trains hauling rock from the dump pockets to the crusher. Fast forward to now. It lives! Privately owned former EMCO C420 7222 will be picked up and brought to the Mineral Range in Ishpeming, Michigan and is going to be used on a reactivated segment of LS&I that served the Humboldt ore operation. A copper-nickel firm, Lundin, is opening a mine north of that location and will truck raw ore to the Humboldt site and then Mineral Range will bring the concentrate to Ishpeming for interchange with CN and eventual movement to Canada for refining.
