In 1961, maximum speed was 50 mph for passenger trains, 45 mph for freight trains (40 between Ewen and Nestoria. Trains handling ore out of Champion Mine must use retainers between the mine and the main track.
In the early 1990's, the EL&S was interchanging pulpwood cars with the Wisconsin Central at Nestoria that were loaded at Bovine for Mead Paper. The speed limit from Sidnaw to Nestoria was 10 mph but the track was in fair shape, 80 lb. rail with stamp sand ballast. There were some big swamps east of Covington that even the Soo Line had speed restrictions on because of rough track caused by the line sinking. I worked the first trip for E&LS to Nestoria as the conductor when we first started running over their. I was impressed with the wye at Nestoria; the west leg where we had to set out the flats was 60 lb. rail and the curvature was so sharp that the WC sectionmen greased the outside rail to keep the flanges from climbing the rail.
