Train Engine at Escanaba train graveyard

Andrew Norton

On our visit to Michigan's Upper Peninsula over Labor Day weekend I did some exploring around Escanaba. I wanted to see where the old loading docks were for loading iron ore onto freighters so I followed the train tracks where they cross U.S. 2 on the east side of town.

After a few twists, turns and dead ends I stumbled upon this train graveyard. Old engines, cars, and other pieces of train equipment litter the rusted rails behind barbed wire topped fence.

A sign at the entrance inside the fenced enclosure stated something like, "No trespassing. Train fans keep out." I obeyed the sign and parked in the lot for the Little Bay De Noc boat launch.

I was able to get some neat shots by leaning over the fence. I would have loved to explore and peak inside the engines, but alas I obeyed the no trespassing sign.

Here is a satellite view of the train graveyard. I don't know how old the satellite photo is, but the boat launch and parking lot are not there.
