A detailed and complete history of the freight and passenger cars of the DM&IR. “As with any railroad, the freight and passenger equipment of the Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range was the lifeblood of its work. The railroad is famous for its traffic in iron ore, but there were other major parts to its traffic also, such as pulpwood. “The fleet of cars of the company, its operations, and the history behind it, are the focus of this book. But the car fleet only makes sense in terms of the industries the railroad served, and a rich trove of information on that subject is here too. Most of the more than 350 photos and graphics have never before published. Company traffic information also fills a gap in our knowledge of railroad history, having no prior presentation at this level of detail.
