Remarks & Notes 
A 15-car train of ore tailings clears Highway 61 as SD40-3 651 leads and 653 shoves hard on the steep grade out of the plant. The mining company was working on their normal tailings loadout up on the hill so they ran the train down to the plant located along the shore of Lake Superior - a fairly rare move. The large building houses crushing equipment.
