NEW RAILROAD HAS STEEL TIES

A seven mile railway using preassembled steel-tie track panels is almost completed in northern Michigan. The railway connects the Tilden Mine and Pelletizing Plant near Ishpeming, Michigan with the Lake Superior and Ishpeming Railroad. The construction crew, though inexperienced in track laying, was able to lay about 800 feet per day. The panelized track comes in 39 foot sections and was manufactured by the L.B. Foster Company of Pittsburg.
