Re: White Pine Sub Discontinuance of Service Filing
STB filing for Rockland-Ontonogan is for the E&LS track. STB filing for the White Pine sub is for the CN line that formerly served the White Pine Mine. The track for the former section either has been or will be removed. The CN (actually, WC) filing is for a discontinuance of service only, so the track will presumably remain in place. That line has been under embargo for a couple of years on account bridge and track conditions. One of the earlier posts mentioned a large bridge or two on this line; I wonder if that is the bridge(s) referred to in the earlier embargo.
