Escanaba & Lake Superior Customer List and Locomotive Roster

Unread postby NS3322 » Tue Jun 04, 2019 1:14 pm

I again was looking through the Wiki on this site and discovered that the E&LS section was totally blank. I spent some time and got a locomotive roster up and what I think is a complete customer list. Let me know if there any mistakes or needed additions to any of the lists. I honestly thought that E&LS would have a lot more Michigan customers...

I like your lists NS3322 :D

A few quick things:
- A few time a year "paint ore" is loaded into gondolas at Sidnaw
- L-P in Sagola also gets tanks cars of resin
- At Crivitz Jct. there is a LPG company that gets large tank cars
- OMNOVA in Howard is serviced by CN IIRC.
- I don't know if ST in Octono Falls is active although the spur is still connected
- I think the United Cooperative in Coleman is for fertilizer only

I'll look at my list later and compare notes
PatC created a monster, 'cause nobody wants to see Don Simon no more they want AARR I'm chopped liver, well if you want AARR this is what I'll give ya, bad humor mixed with irrelevant info that'll make you roll your eyes quicker than a ~Z~ banhammer...

I'm fairly certain 5 Point Fab isn't a customer of E&LS.

Abrams ships out pulpwood occasionally to L-P in Sagola. This might be what you called Sobieski.

The fertilizer dealer in Coleman is Agventures

Lakes Gas is the LPG dealer in Crivitz Jct.

The predecessor to Tyco Fire Products (Pyro-Chem) in Marinette would receive an occasional tank car. It looks like the spur is still connected but I don't know if Tyco gets rail service.

I don't think Marinette Marine or Quality Assembly ship by rail.

There is a pulpwood loader in Channing. There might be two. Cars will be loaded at times next to the yard and other times near the switch on the original line to Escanaba.
