Station: Munising Junction

DSS&A Overpass at Munising JunctionOld South Shore Trestle at Munising JunctionMunising Junction is located five miles southwest of the City of Munising. The Munising Railway originally crossed under the Duluth, South Shore & Atlantic Railway on its way to Stillman.  The line quickly became an interchange point with the South Shore and it continues to serve a similar function today, though the lines south to Stillman and west on the South Shore to Marquette are abandoned and removed.

The South Shore portion west of Munising Junction was removed around 2001. There is a small interchange yard located along the branch just south of the overpass.
