Railroads - Copper Range

Railroads, Cars, Water, Lakes, Woody Plants, Trees Theyve earned their rest. There are 25 railway cars in this string but not all are shown in the photo. The Copper Range wooden coal and copper ore cars have been in service since before World War No. 1. Now they have been put out to pasture near the slag pile of the one-time Michigan smelter. The cars were purchased without sideboards. To give them greater capacity the auxiliary planks were added. Many of the cars will still be used if the lines steel cars are too few. But most are on the way out. They were especially busy during the years when the Copper Range coal dock was in use. Many is the load of coal they carried for the Wolverine, Mohawk, Champion, Trimountain, Baltic and other mines. They have also transported coal to the Atlas Powder Co. [Photo of the retired cars sitting on tracks near the lake.]
