Fall Field trip!

This Sunday, November 10th, we will be visiting the Mineral Range in Humboldt, MI. We will be leaving Lot 24 at 8am and arriving in Humboldt around 9:30 or 10 to begin the tour. We will see the crossing, junction, bridgework, and track bed leading up to the mill. If possible, we will also be having a look at their locomotive used in their current switching operations.

At 1pm we will possibly be visiting the LS&I for a site tour of their repair shop, ore dock, and the Empire Mine. I will keep you posted on the status of this. Otherwise we will be heading back to campus and should be home by mid-afternoon.

Below is the sign-up sheet. Please sign up as soon as possible so I can let the tour guide know how many are showing up. 


Also, we will stopping for lunch on the way home (or in between tours if that works out) so bring some money. Additionally, dress warm. There is snow in Humboldt. Wear steel toe boots if you have them. PPE will be provided.
