01 Oct 2016 ESCANABA, MICH -- CN U745, with 45 iron ore empties from the Algoma Steelworks in Sault Ste Marie, Canada has just departed Gladstone, for their circuitous loop around Escanaba.
From the air, we capture them crossing the Escanaba River on the Manistique Sub main - they'll soon cross back over to the other side on the Marquette Range Sub. In fact, that flyover bridge at the beginning will soon be crossed by this very train!
This circuitous route for the CN in Escanaba is a result of owning both the former SOO Line and CNW mains, which of course weren't designed with single-road ownership in mind.
