A switch key from the Manistique & Lake Superior Railroad.  [Dave Fulkerth Collection]

  • 1916:  The Michigan Railroad Commission reports that the M&LS line has no stations except at Manistique and Shingleton.  A mixed train is provided for the accommodation of the traveling public which seems to be ample for the traffic presented.  The rail in the track is 60 and 65 pound and in fair condition.  13,600 ties were renewed this season and eighty rods of fence were built this year.  Weeds on the right of way not cut.  This property has showed a decided improvement since the last inspection.  [MCR-1916 pg. 53]
