Location: Downtown Yard, Marquette, MI
Downtown Yard was a DSS&A railroad yard which ran parallel to the shore of Lake Superior south of downtown Marquette. The LS&I ran parallel to this yard and interchanged with the DSS&A here. From the north end of the yard, the DSS&A had ore loading operations (and dock) and turned west towards Negaunee. From the south end of the yard, the DSS&A headed along the lake to St. Ignace. The Marquette & Western railroad also left the DSS&A here on a second route to Negaunee. This short lived railroad was folded into the DSS&A and the railroad ran this line and their main line to Negaunee as "double track" running, with ore coming east on the main line and empties going back to the mines on the old M&W line.
