U.S. Steel’s giant steel mills had a giant appetite for raw material, and USS operated an entire transportation system to feed those steel mills. This program highlights six railroads and eleven ships in action when they were a major part of U.S. Steels transportation divisions. Railroads include: Birmingham Southern Railroad, Union Railroad, Elgin Joliet & Eastern Railway, Bessemer & Lake Erie Railroad, Cartier Railway, Duluth Missabe & Iron Range Railway.

The Great Lakes ships include: USS Great Lakes Fleet consisting of Self-unloaders, Steamers, Classic Lakers and the massive 1000 Foot Super Lakers. Large amounts of raw materials were mined and transported by U.S. Steel’s transportation companies including limestone, coal, and iron ore products, which were then used by the mills in their steel making process.

    A good mix of switching and main line. A big fan of Plets Express as his videos are put together nicely. Plets Expres really did their research on these productions. I recommend any Plets Videos if you like informative Narration and good picture quality.
