Copper Range #51, the only "ten-wheeler" on the roster, poses along with a nice long passenger train for a photo outside Calumet. Circa 1910. In December 1899, this engine, along with another Baldwin #22, were the 3rd and 4th locomotives to be delivered to Copper Range. (Kevin Musser Collection)

Just wondered. How does one know where this picture was taken? Does it come from information on the back of the picture or does it come from visual clues? Could the location be on the straight end of the Laurium Branch? That's outside of Calumet. The engine looks shiny new! At Laurium there was a racetrack/fairground on the East side of the track and that could be the reason for this passenger extra. On the pilot of engine #51 are "extra flags". What a beautiful train! Could we wonder if coach #60 is in this consist? Wonderful picture.

Info on photo location is on the back of the photo, not many visual clues, I agree.
