For U.P. (Upper Peninsula) Fans.....
Author: bandob

Some reposts from several years ago...

C&NW Train #162 had been given a new name: "The Iron Country," when it made this evening stop in Negaunee, MI circa 1962. The train had formerly been known as "The Iron &Copper Country Express." It still carried an overnight sleeper to Chicago.

On another 1962 morning, #161 has arrived at Negaunee, MI from Chicago. Next stop, Ishpeming and the end of the line.

Here are two of the Peninsula "400." First is a photo was found in a Marquette, MI antique store by my aunt and sent to me. Date, photographer, exact location unknown, but some guesses are possible. May be near Palmer, and probably 1940's judging by slant-nose power and length of train.

Second photo is the Bi-Level Peninsula "400" arriving Negaunee enroute to Chicago, circa 1962.

Right, Kingman. That may have been I who posted the photo to the C&NWHS archive. At the time, I thought it was Negaunee, but since, in talking to some former C&NW railroaders, I'm not sure. Palmer seems unlikely, perhaps it is Little Lake or Sands. I was pretty familiar with the Negaunee area and often watched the "400" depart across the Healy Avenue crossing, and this area in the photo just does not look familiar.

Here's a big ALCO at Baldwin siding, Negaunee, MI.

The Lake Superior & Ishpeming once had a fleet of ALCO diesels in an attractive red and yellow color scheme. Here are three views around Negaunee, MI, late 1960's or early 1970's.

As a 16-year-old kid, I rode this train, boarding at Negaunee for Chicago, after spending 2 weeks with friends at Ives Lake, near Big Bay, MI.

More LS&I, now in solid red. In the 1970's.
