LAKE SUPERIOR & ISHPEMING operates around 54 miles from Marquette, Michigan to various iron ore mines and processing plants in the area. Unfortunately my only visit coincided with a strike in the mining industry which had temporarily shut down the railroad, and to make things worse it was raining! The railroad kindly allowed permission to visit their yard at Eagle Mills where a pair of rare General Electrics, 2300 a U23C in green livery and 2502 a U25C in the newer red livery, awaited a resumption of business. 7 September 1990. - mike-walker
