One unusual shipment I recall seeing in either the fall of '77 or '78 was the "L.W.R" boxcar, which was loaded in the old East Houghton yard, where the Super 8 motel is located now.
I found out it was for the Luthern World Relief charity, which would ship out a car load of clothing, blankets, quilts, etc. for overseas charity programs. I just discovered that this charity (primarily in Wisconsin and the U.P.) still ships their donated items by boxcar; this October they are loading out a boxcar in Menominee.
