Railroads, Buildings and Structures, Transportation, Buildings, Dwellings, Housing, Single Family The high trestle over M-26 at the Ahmeek mill on Torch Lake is fast achieving the reputation of being as signifcant a photographic prize as the much gabled Quincy shafthouse, No. 6. The diesel locomotives stop at different sides of the steel overpass depending upon which side the sun is holding reign. The Ahmeek mill is performing prodigious jobs these days. Its milling all Calumet and Heclas rock originating in the Copper Country. The trestle sees Caledonia as well as Ahmeek rock and it carries Ojibway ore as well as a sprinkling of Mohawkite. The photo shows No. 203 shunting mineral ore rock cars about in order to get the dumpings in the proper bins. [Image of the ore cars suspended above the highway with homes and automobiles below it.]
