A C&NW crew with a UP power set prepares to couple onto a loaded all-rail taconite train at Saunders on the Interstate Branch during March 1984. DM&IR had pulled the train clear of the switch after dropping their caboose, C-225, west of the junction. The ore train is running from Minntac to Geneva Steel in Utah by way of C&NW and UP.
