Lake Superior & Ishpeming
Escanaba & Lake Superior
Chicago & North Western
The operations of the Lake Superior & Ishpeming, Escanaba & Lake Superior and the Chicago & North Western railroads are viewed in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In action shots the LS&I fleet of Alco roadswitchers is seen smoking it up on ore drags along with the last operating U25C anywhere. The only remaining RS-3 on the LS&I is seen on a freight run and we take you along for a cab ride in an Alco RSD-15. A short visit to E&LS provides Baldwin action and finds recently acquired Reserve Mining SD-9s in operation. The C&NW gets into the act with first generation power working the Escanaba ore dock and modern C&NW units are seen on ore drags.
BONUS: Iron ore Industry Film from 1952, "Iron Country"!
