CN trackage in Michigan has most of its history in the Grand Trunk Western Railroad, a long time subsidiary of CN.  In a common branding strategy several years ago, the GTW name was eliminated.  CN also owns and operates the former Detroit and Toledo Shore Line Railroad, as well as a small part of the Detroit, Toledo and Ironton Railroad in southeast Michigan, and the Wisconsin Central Railroad (former Soo Line, DSS&A and CN&W) in the Upper Peninsula (map coming soon).

CN Mt. Clemens Sub

CN Operations in Marquette:  The CN SORE-1 train generally arrives at Partridge (from Escanaba) about 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and heads directly to Eagle Mills with 70, 3-bay empty hopper cars and extra freight when needed.  After dropping off at Eagle Mills, they pick up at Queens if needed, and head to Partridge to get 70 new 3-bay loaded hoppers which the LS&I filled and delivered.  They leave back south around 3:00 p.m. if everything goes smoothly.  CN's L-039 is a locla freight and goes from Escanaba all the way to Ishemping Yard or turns around at KI Sawyer.  It hauls general local freight for the line, as well as cars for the L'Anse sub and the LS&I.  L-041 is the Ishpeming local job which goes to L'Anse and Baraga.  It sometimes meets the L-039 south of Ishpeming.    From Tom Carello.  March, 2002.
