Chicago & North Western’s Peninsula Division was built to haul iron ore. For over one hundred and twenty years (the) North Western hauled iron ore from the Marquette and Menominee Iron Ranges to the docks at Escanaba, Michigan for transloading into ore boats. The railroad quickly expanded its service to haul every conceivable commodity as agriculture and industry developed in the Upper Peninsula and the northeast corner of Wisconsin. This book combines a carefully researched history of the railroad’s facilities, equipment, and operations with over 300 black and white and color photographs of trains, stations, and servicing facilities. Detailed photo captions explain the operation of the railroad from Green Bay through Escanaba to Ishpeming, and from Powers through Iron Mountain to Watersmeet, with a special focus on the Escanaba ore docks, industries and mines served in on-line communities, and the operation of passenger trains.

Wisconsin's western border blends a busy variety of colorful action
with stunning scenery. This book will fill your eyes with bold
competition between rivals from Duluth in the north to Dubuque in the
south. From the early 1960s on, stunning vistas near Lake Superior
highlight obstacles carriers have to surmount as they faced off
against each other to vie for freight and passengers. As lines bridge
and follow the Mississippi River and its bluffs, nature's beauty and
the carriers' diesels will tantalize your mind as you see adversaries
vie for every ton and each passenger.
