David is the Author of The Making of a Mining District which is a wonderful work on the early development period. He has also just started building a model of the Quincy & Torch Lake in the late 1800's in HOn3, in which, he is getting a eye opening experience understanding selective compression. Here are some great color slides taken by David in the Winter of 1959. The Photos of David Krause

Don states: "When I was in Houghton in January, the WC was working in L'Anse and Baraga. A GP30 and spreader plowed the line on the 14th and a second train brought about a dozen boxcars to the paper plant the next day.

This photo was taken as the daily E&LS train prepared to leave Ontonagon for Channing on a late March, 1999, afternoon.
