C&NW route to Houghton

The CopperRange.org Discussion Board: Upper Peninsula Railroads: C&NW route to Houghton
By Ronald Miaso (Rmiaso) on Wednesday, October 11, 2006 - 3:51 pm:

I now live in Perkins, MI (north and west of Escanaba) near the now Wisonsin Central track going northwest to the Empire Mine. My question is this: Is this the route that the C&NW 400's took to get to Copper Country? I was in the station in Green Bay (now a restaurant)and I saw a poster on the wall saying "400's to Green Bay & Upper Peninsula". After leaving Green Bay, did the route go north to Powers and then Escanaba, or northwest to Iron Mountain? Also, was there ever a rail station in Perkins and how could I find any info on timetables for the passenger trains to Copper Country? Long time rail buff - Ron Miaso
