E&LS Question and photos of a rare Baldwin in Ecorse, MI
Posted by Michael K on 11/17/2012, 12:43 pm
Mike here from the lower peninsula. I work for a class one railroad as a conductor and don't get to posting very much. I love trains, but mostly the older stuff you only see in books, and occasionally in person.I have always wanted to visit the E&LS but for as far away as it is, have been leery of their No Railfan approach. I don't blame them, but I don't know if it is worth the drive to the UP. I would really like to see The Baldwins #300 and #202. I don't even know if they are used, but that would be much worth the trip up there and I would be sure to stay off the property. If someone could email me off board at firstname.lastname@example.org that would be greatly appreciated.
So while, I have wanted to get up to the UP for some time now.. I never expected to see a Baldwin in the Detroit area that was thought to be cut up for a long time. After years of being turned away, I finally have forged the right contacts to see Detroits last Baldwin, a DS-44-660 in Ecorse, MI!
