    Your bump brought this thread to my attention. Fun stuff for me.

    Was at MTU in Houghton 76-78. Had a Kawasaki 175/F7 with me while there. Commuted back and forth to class as well as using it to explore all the back country trails and the old rail routes throughout the Keweenaw. Back then the routes were rather primitive unrefined for the "modern" recreationalists we have today. Still have a track spike I found at Mill Mine Junction in 76.

    At that time the Soo Line was still running in the Keweenaw and the Houghton roundhouse was still there.

    I have quite a few pics (slides) of the area ( including the Soo Line) and will take a look at which ones will show well here.

    As a final note; my mother as a young girl traveled aboard the Chief Wawatam with her family to their summer home in Hessel back in the 30's. 40's, and 50's.
