Review of Northland Baldwins and the Escanaba & Lake Superior Railroad DVD

See rare Baldwin and EMD diesels on the Escanaba & Lake Superior Railroad. The E&LS trains travel through the scenic forests and towns of Upper Michigan and Northeastern Wisconsin. The E&LS operates on over 320 miles of track to serve this timber and paper producing region. In this video you'll see plenty of exciting railroad action as the entire system is covered from Ontonagon to Green Bay, from Marinette to Crivitz and via trackage rights over the WC from Escanaba to Pembine. The E&LS powers their trains with a fascinating and rare fleet of locomotives from EMD and Baldwin, including both switchers and road diesels. You'll see the connecting railroads of the Wisconsin Central, Chicago & North Western, Green Bay & Western, Fox River Valley and also the Nicolet Badger Northern.

This exciting video was shot from the camera of Bradley A. Plets between 1992 and 1996.
