Manistique & Lake Superior

The Manistique and Lake Superior was a short line running north from Manistique and they had one engine, one caboose and one snowplow - at least, that is all that I ever photographed. The railroad was bought by the Ann Arbor, and today the one engine they had is in the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wis.

Would you like prints of most any of these slides? Go to for details!
