Timetable: Escanaba & Lake Superior - Main Line - Wells to Channing
The main line of the Escanaba & Lake Superior was used for logging and timber products throughout its history. For a time in the early 1900's, the Milwaukee Road used this line to haul ore cars from the Iron Mountain, Crystal Falls and Iron River area mines to its dock at Wells. Since the 1980's the line has been used for the storage of idle railroad cars.
