Timetable: DSS&A/C&NW - Bessemer Branch (Negaunee) Joint Line

This branch was a double track line built from Negaunee to the Teal Lake area mines, specifically to the Hartford Mine and Cambria Mine. It was known on the C&NW as the Bessemer Branch, not to be confused with the DSS&A Bessemer Branch in the Gogebic County. The branch had a wye for turning locomotives east of the Cambria mine. The joint agreement for operation was 1895 but the line may have been built earlier. A joint agreement to serve the Hartford mine was made in 1903.
