Moving Minnesota's iron ore from mine to port required tremendous amounts of power. The Baldwin Locomotive plant filled the bill with some of the largest steam locomotives ever built. Nicknamed the Yellowstones, this class of locomotive were designated 2-8-8-4s, using two leading wheels, two sets of eight massive drive wheels, and a four wheel trailing truck.
