LS&I and Empire Mine - Fall 2007

For the third year in a row, REAC members made the two hour journey to the Lake Superior and Ishpeming Railroad to see the RR operations of a short track setup first hand. Those who attended were able to witness activity in the yard, see some of the daily operations of the line and journey out to the ore docks where iron ore is loaded for transport on Lake Superior. We are very fortunate to be able to have such an experience so close to home and look forward to this trip every year at the end of the fall semester.
