New track to Humboldt – May 16

Heading west from Ishpeming’s Euclid Yard on May 16, I was surprised to find that the newly re-laid track on the new Mineral Range to Lundin’s mill in Humboldt has not been ballasted nor leveled yet. It’s just sitting on packed dirt. Some of the ties are hanging from the rails. Also, the re-laid track ends just past (just east of) the new crossing of highway M-95. This is well short of the mill. So it looks like they have a lot of work to do before they can run trains to the mill.
