MARQUETTE, MICHIGAN - 2019 Since 1896, the Lake Superior and Ishpeming Railroad has served the vital role of shuttling iron ore from the Marquette Iron Range down to the dock for further transport via the Great Lakes. Created and still owned and operated by iron mining giant Cleveland-Cliffs, the railroad was created primarily to streamline shipment around the existing railroads, whose rates were too high and service too unreliable in the opinion of mining managers. Now working their 123rd season, the railroad whose original mainline was built in just 8 months continues to use both the original route and new territory to serve the Tilden Mine, Michigan’s last operating iron ore exploit. Long revered for its beautiful scenery and battle-worn General Electric horsepower, the LS&I of today still resembles that of days gone by, as they continue to operate some of the last U30C and C30-7 locomotives in the country, shuttling ore cars which date back to before World War II. In this special presentation of the Thornapple River Rail Series, we’ll take a look at the modern LS&I, with its heavy-haul attitude in a small homegrown package, which ships over 8 million long tons of iron ore annually. So come along for a trip to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, as we document the Lake Superior and Ishpeming of the 21st Century: Michigan’s Iron Ore Road. --------- Links to buy "LS&I in Color" Volumes 1 and 2.
