CN 2626 Memorial Day weekend in Baraga County
Posted by Andrew on 6/4/2012, 9:44 pm
I spent the long weekend at camp and heard CN go past Three Lakes (west of Michigamme in Baraga County) on Saturday morning. Caught the train heading east, going about 10-15mph, past East Beaufort Lake Road at 8:15am on May 26, 2012. The train had approximately 20 cars, mostly pulp wood. I heard it come back west toward L’Anse on Sunday afternoon but I didn’t go out to see it. CN has replaced several crossings in the area – at Beaufort Rd. they installed a fancy one with rubber roadway and heavy welded rail. This one was welded on April 24. It looks like they’ve replaced a few of the worst ties along the line in this area, but there are still numerous bad ones. Glad to see regular service continuing on this line. http://www.flickr.com/photos/80027038@N02/
