Two lines east from Hermansville

On my wall at the office I have a Michigan highway map and a Wisconsin highway map tacked up side-by-side. I noticed that the Wisconsin highway map still shows the railroad track symbol on the ex-Soo line from Hermansville to Wells. But the Michigan highway map just shows the ex-C&NW (now CN) line from Hermansville to Escanaba. When was the ex-Soo Line track removed? Did CN operate over both routes for a while? The old system map on the E&LS website shows that they had trackage rights over the CN-owned ex-Soo track. Does that play into this somehow? Will somebody fill in the details of the timeline for me to satisfy my curiosity? Thanks!
