Great Northern Railway Ore Docks of Lake Superior Photo Archive

The Great Northern Iron Ore Docks were the largest iron ore docks in the world. Now railfans and history buffs can see how these ore docks were constructed and operated through the historic photographs and illustrations in this book. Detailed photos show these fascinating docks in operation (trains loading ships) as well as accurate drawings made from original Great Northern blueprints - perfect for railroad modelers!

The majority of the photos cover the 1920s-1970s, which includes the Golden Age of railroading. These docks and the stories they contain are a unique piece of Americana. The remaining docks are falling apart and partially stripped. But through this book, railfans, modelers and history buffs can continue to appreciate the Great Northern iron ore docks.
