Ore Dock Tracks

One interesting piece of information to add to the photo. The ore dock on the right is the DSS&A dock. Empty ore cars came off the dock and took the right-hand track in the photo and traveled back to the mines via the Marquette and South Western line. Gradients were less on this line compared to the DSS&A main. Loaded ore cars came down the main to the dock spur, which is the track coming onto the dock from the left.
