Orphan trains sent to MN

Does anyone have information or know where to get information about orphan train riders sent to Minnesota between 1875 and 1881? My great-grandfather was adopted and his mother was reported to have been born in New York on the 1880 MN census. So, I am not sure if he was an orphan that was endentured or adopted by the parents that raised him or if he was even an orphan that rode the train to MN. The only lead that I have is the reporting of his mother's birth as being in New York on the 1880 census. He is listed as being an adopted son on that census only. If anyone can help in anyway, I would be more than grateful.
