In 1994,Southern Pacific made an agreement with Geneva Steel that it could deliver Minnesota Iron Ore for a cheaper price than what UP could. As a result,SP won the contract. This was to be short lived however,Just two years later in 1996,The Minnesota Taconite Trains would be back in Union Pacific Hands.

SOUTHERN PACIFIC ''CINDER BLOCK MEMORIES''.
Title:  SOUTHERN PACIFIC ''CINDER BLOCK MEMORIES''.
Description:  Southern Pacific's Alton Southern-Roseville,CA Manifest rolls west at Springville with three classic ''Cinder Block'' Locomotives in charge. Classics today however, At the time it was seldom appreciated. Just two months remain until Southern Pacific is absorbed by the Union Pacific and relegated to history books,It seems impossible that it has been nearly fifteen years since I got this classic gem. 8552 and it's train are on the eastbound track technically owned by Utah Railway.
