Atlantic and Lake Superior RR

“The Atlantic first built its railroad to bring copper rock from its mine up north to its mill along the Portage Canal – a distance of just three miles. When the mine was forced to erect its new mill along Lake Superior that distance increased to nine miles. In addition to serving its own mill, the Atlantic further expanded its railroad to service the newly discovered Baltic Mine as well, required spur lines to both the mine and the Baltic’s mill.”
