I gotta ask: is Newberry on an CN branch or the mainline and what is the track speed on the line? All I know is that I believe its the same line to follows M-28 to Munising it seemed like.

Newberry is on the branch that originates in Trout Lake and ends in Munising. There's a lot of history to it and at one time was a main line from St. Ignace to Ashland, WI going through Marquette and Nestoria.

Where do they go to pick up their cars for the branch to Munising? It does seem like they are profitable enough that the track looks heavy-duty and well maintained. Also where does the mainline at Trout Lake begin and end?

The Newberry local picks up and sets out cars at Trout Lake. Trout Lake is on a line that begins in Green Bay and ends in St. Ste. Marie. In both GB and SSM they connect with other lines that go across North America.
