E&LS 503

This is from the other site. And I share RB's frustration about not getting a response from the administrator over there :x .

I didn't know E&LS renumbered the two leased SD40-2's?

I do realize this is a Upper Peninsular question, but I can't post over there and the ADMIN hasn't responded to my e-mail dating back to Feb 2020.

What is the story and/or history of E&LS locomotive #503. It is an EMD SD-40 but that is all I know.

Regarding the admin situation, is that board an afterthought these days? It seems to be a very antiquated, “Created by Al Gore” era of internet message board.

About the only people still posting over there who don’t also post here are stick in the muds who somehow think this site is “too complicated to use”.

Hey, don't pick on Don. He seems to be a nice knowlegable person. Also when I log on this site itv says it is not a secure site.

In the video there are 4 CN gons at the end of the train. I'm thinking they are either for:
- Storage
- Paint ore loading in Sidnaw
- or scrap metal service in Kingsford/Iron Mountain
Can anyone confirm if its one of these or something else?

I’d put my money on paint ore from Sidnaw.

Somebody has been hauling material out of the Ohio Mine near the Baraga/ Marqeutte County Line. I wonder if that is where the ore is going. The trucks turn west, they stain the road with red mud.

The paint ore used to get loaded on the CN. It switched to Sidnaw a few years ago IIRC.
